NOTES:

  • I lowered my 200 meter time by .32 seconds from last month.  I was 1/10th of a second from qualifying for the sprint tournament.
  • I was a second slower in the 500 meter and 1/2 second slower in 2K from last month.   I didn’t feel warmed up for the 500 meter and wasn’t fully recovered for either event after racing Friday night.  I worked harder than necessary in the scratch race Friday night.  It cost me 3rd place and 2 points.  
  • I drew last position in the keirin start.  Next time I have to move up before the motorcycle pulls off.  
  • The final race (25 lap points race) was rained out Saturday night. I had planned to race more strategically because a podium spot was on the line.  I was confident I could move up to third place just being more conservative. 
  • I was the oldest rider in the 50+ category by 3 years.  Next season I will be racing 60+.  I am still building a base and plan to be in much better condition going into next season.
