Heat of the Summer

Last nights race seemed pretty fast. As Bill Collins reported it was an average of 26.4 mph. There seemed to be a lot of attacks. I was feeling pretty good. These training races have really helped me this year. I feel they have helped me gain confidence and the ability to ride the front a lot more.

Jon Nisbet and myself represented the Virginia Beach Wheelmen. Jon went with a break in the final 10 laps and was able to pull out a 3rd place. The rest of the packed seemed to break apart on the final lap and as usual I forgot how long that sprint was from the corner. So I ended up dying out at the end but still ended up 15. I was happy. I worked a lot and it was great training. That's what its all about, right?
