We had a large group at the start. I got a good start went into the grass in the top ten, got on Rich's wheel and it was on. Rich and I worked with Jay and Denny for a while, then Iltis made up to us, but he powered on through. About 4 laps in, I went into the hard left into the infield barrier section a bit too hot, I locked up the rear brakes, power slid and popped the tire off the rim. rode i to the barriers, ran to get the B bike and started chasing. MK got by me here. Racer and Jay (who also flatted) caught up to me a few laps later and we were pulling Rich, Denny and MK back, after a few laps, I hopped the log and proceeded to lose my chain, this ended up happening 4 or 5 more times, needless to say, I think I finished last.
Happy with the ability to stay in the second group after a good start, on a dead flat, fast course. Nice to see DC at the front.
Cavey and I were joined by Rico on our post race date.
As Rico' says, 'none of us are getting paid to do this.' Be nice to each other.
