First Friday Night

Tonight felt great! I was humbly reminded that eating during track racing is essential - you must keep those energy levels up (rookie move!) and a 50x15 seemed a little small of a gear. But I was also reminded positioning is key - and being in the right wheels before a sprint can pay off huge dividends (thanks Guy!). I managed to win a points race sprint for the first time ever - and hopefully that's just a taste of what's to come....

I'm glad I saved riding my track bike for tonight - it made me giggle like a little girl again. A huge smile paned across my face. And thanks to all those people who braved the cold tonight and watched!

11 ladies showed up and had fun too - I loved watching Amara put on that pain face for a big sprint during a couple of the races. I missed seeing her kick some ass! And it was awesome have Alynda there too - she and Jimmy will be missed when they make the big move to AZ...

Winter training camp in az. I know your work schedule is flexible, if not totally optional, so we expect you guys to come down!
