hey, real quick.....
check out the slideshow i have on the right of the blog. good pics taken by the wife from this weekends racing. 4 fields were ok. not as big as years past. 50-55 in the cat 4 field on friday nite in downtown kck. sprint finish on a 200 meter hill. kept the big guys from having a shot. i finished 8th. no racing for me on the hilly wet and muddy circuit race on the infamous cliff drive in kc missouri. came out to watch and the early races were all marred by wrecks and muddy and just yucky conditions. glad i didnt race. save my legs for sundays crit on the 8 corner flat fast overland park grand prix. with one guy up the road the last half of the race about 30 seconds, the cat 4 field was sprinting for 2nd place. just one question though. WHAT THE HELL WERE THE 8 SKC RACERS DOING NOT COMING TO THE FRONT TO HELP BRING THAT GUY BACK??
oh well. i finished a solid 7th. two top 10's on the weekend and won my entry money back.
i am now going to petition to be upgraded to a 3 on the road. i just dont think i am improving racing in the 4's. i dont race enough on the road in twelve months to garner enough upgrade points but i have accumulated enough top 10's in bigger sized fields the last couple years to upgrade that route. we will see.
i'll write a more extensive race report and post it in the next couple of days.
some good fun was had with the last road racing of the season for me...
time for CROSS'!!!!!
