The Bryan Park circuit race brought BikeWorks out in force. Cat 5 had Ken taking second and with that the man to be for the rest of the day!! Image the joy of instead of going through the in's & out's of what happen to you in the race you just have to say second . How you do today, second. Phone call to the wife , second. Going up and checking posted finish, still second!!
Cat 4 was BikeWorks most attend with Jeff, Jordan ,& Steve in the mix. This was probably BikeWorks most dominate presence. The boys were at or on the front for the whole race . The finale execution of the race plan didn't come off has hoped. Just being there at the end to try something is more than half the battle . I would take those odds every time and sooner than late good things will happen !
The 1,2,3 was left to Bill & myself. This was a fast affair, with some 70 of us all willing to race in a park that I believe was intended for nature walks! The striking features of this was the speed,which I suppose in a race is expected. The closeness of your neighbor and the consideration needed to the course itself! For me I wouldn't say I didn't have it today, more like I didn't bring enough of it !! Felt like I had settled into a bit of a" Can fly zone" but was still concerned with the numerous rocket attacks going on at the front? I was left to fate with about 8 to go. There where two back to back hard efforts and before I could kiss the bride the train was out of the station ! No catching that train. Bill on the hand faired much better. Able to stay in the mix and to the front in the later stages. Until one to go Bill was trailing more to the back but was able to pull off his now infamous last lap shuffle sliding up the field into a seemingly top 15 pl finish. Great result went you look at just how many didn't make it in !!
