TBF #2 went much better than the first one. If you recall, at the first race I suffered a catastrophic flat that sent me to the back of the pack, and I finished alone in the back. When the next one came around, I was ready to redeem myself.
We had to fight through them again, constantly passing on the first lap. I stayed with the front of my group this time, and had no flats.
After lap 1, I was in 3rd, 2nd place had a gap on me, and 1st had a gap in him.
The race was pretty boring from there. We all held our positions for the next 3 laps, out of sight of each other and the rest of the field.
I finished in 3rd.
Although it wasn’t a particularly exciting race, it felt really good for me to finally make it back onto the podium, and redeem my awful result from the race before.
Look for a blog on the BP Winter Crit this week.
