At the BBN club champs
MMAS2, sprint day (Saturday).
Hot, gusty northerly.
98.4", disk wheel.
Held starts (!%#$CV#$RT@#$!!!!!) not gate starts. 500m ITT, 42.02s (~0.5s faster than last year) - good enough for 3rd, beaten by the Wizard and Jamie Goddard.
Flying 200's - same gear, 13.4 (hand timing, lots of variance, one had me at 13.2 .... results as such of no value as very inconsistent). Qualify 4th (!) - Wayne Arazny rode a 12.9ish f200! Wow..... Very gusty northerly making for fast but inconsistent times. A lot of luck with the gusts, or bad luck, depending on when you got a blast of wind.
I drop down to 91.8" for the sprints.
Race Jamie Goddard in the semi, he wins after leading me out for 2.5 laps. I didn't come off his wheel with enough power, maybe a chance lost? Jamie's bloody quick ... I dunno, if I'd come at him harder? Maybe?
Race Wayne Arazny for 3rd place, I win, Wayne's cooked, he needs more sprint training, he's fast, but he runs out of efforts very quickly, if his 200m time was right, and we think it was close, he's much faster than he raced against me.
So two third places. Given that The Wizard would win, and Jamie .. they're both a level above me, I'm pleased with the days efforts. The F200 was my best for the summer, although the time is not to be trusted.
Dino won the 500 and the sprint in MMAS5.
Em won the 500 and the sprint in JW15.
It'll be a busy night at presentation night for the aboc sprint squad.
Em on fire at state team training, reports of a blisteringly quick standing 125 ... Watch out at the Aussies ...
