Broke into the top 10

Last round I had some sort of chest infection and couldn't breathe properly, resulting in me coughing through the entire length of the race. Today I was feeling healthier and I needed a decent result to shake doubts, caused from the last round, out of my head (I race for fun and I don't have to win, but I do have to feel like I improved, otherwise I feel disappointed).

Another Race Day

It was a cool and foggy morning (the view from the lookout as I drove past was amazing. . . you were above the clouds and thats all you could see). My warm up consisted mostly of sitting on my bike chatting and I can live with that. The social aspect is a key draw card for me participating in these events.

Not my best day, but it's all about getting out there. And on the funny side of things; I washed out the front, crashing right in front of the timing tent Sticking out tongue (apparently I was the third person to do this).

Jumping into the deep end

So I've owned my bike for nearly a month and I'm enjoying it so much I decide I should give racing ago. So what do I do? I enter an endurance race, 4 hour Solo. My friends tell me I'm crazy, but my thinking was I don't have to ride it like a "race". I can stop between laps and rest if I want. Hell, I can just do one lap and I'm done, if need be.

My second club race

As far as series points for my grade (D) goes, today puts me in 8th.

So this was my second club meeting and I enjoyed it as it felt like I had improved since my last effort. Who knows; maybe next round I can break into the top ten? Smiling
