Round 5 rapid report
A few wins at last!
A dog-slow F200, 13.85s confirmed my suspicions, I was busted from Saturday's efforts. Even my warmup squats in the Powerhaus in the morning had felt lethargic. C'est la Vie.
I'm up first against Rob Tidey, and to cut a long story short, I won it by a very very tight margin. Wow ... Unexpected. Rob went on to win the grade.
Second race is against Chris Dann, who is on a bender at the moment and he wins it. He went through the rounds undefeated but lost in the final to Rob.
Third is against Julian Vince, I shut the door hard on him and take another win.
Two wins! I'm in the finals! Three of us in B grade tied on 12 points and my bad F200 time means I'm racing Peter Vlahos for 3rd overall. Over 3 laps .. against a pursuiter who beat me in the F200. Heh ... Anyway, he jumps 2 laps out and wins, I never caught him. Still, very happy, a good day's racing. We raised $683 for the Red Cross and everyone left with a smile after some fantastic racing.
Will write a proper write-up tomorrow. Bed time. Broken tonight, everything hurts!
