Hi! How is everyone? I just got finish taking a much need rest in my 2nd year as a Cat5 racer(at the begining of June). Taking the learning Curve in road racing in small chucks as well a my goals that I set for myself. Seeing steady improvement as a 2nd year Cat 5 racer,which has motivate me to continue. Well let me get to the race report. I went to Va to do their State Crit Championship,since they welcome Non-Va people to do their State Crit Championship. The Course was flat with a slight incline which made it intersting. The crit was 25 laps of pure fun. That not to mention adding a headwind coming in off the water(oh what fun). Well I manage to stay with the pack for a while ,before I was left to fight the headwind coming into the finishing line. The pack lapped me (2) before the end of the crit. I manage to beat 4 people out of the 21 Cat5 racer. So I finish the crit in 17th out 21 Cat5 racer. The shocking part of the race report is that I have a good reputation in the state next door to my home state(N.C.) They want me to come up there train with them. I hope you get a good laugh out of this race report and post.

P.S.

glad to hear the racing is going well (and glad to hear you managed to keep the rubber down, too)! keep training, it does get better.
