TL is Coming

Recommended Posts

Relatively small group in the B's which was welcome for the first night back. Started off with a scratch and was in a break of 2 with about 6 to go but got caught on the bell. Second scratch race in a break again from about 9 to go and caught with 1.5 to go. Third was the points, hanging a bit here - got a point but never really competitive. Last race was the tempo - race went hard from the gun and then went even harder after the first points lap when Sammy attacked and got pretty big gap. Was a struggle catching but i knew there was noone on my wheel at that point so could commit to the chase. Eventually caught and rolled him on the 3rd sprint and tried to maintain as long as i could which was 4 laps then i think it was James that caught me but i was seeing stars by that point. I think 4 was enough for the win. Good showing from all the Jets tonight. 👍

Now i cant sleep and have a major case of track cough. Good to be back :D

Back to track league after being ill for a couple of weeks. Feel like ive lost some fitness plus probably still some lingering effects of a virus so found it pretty hard. First couple of scratch races i  would get dropped, then back on, then dropped, then back on again. Unable to go with any accelerations so just rode steady in the race but not really a part of it. Points was a bit easier however i did nothing.  Last was a tempo -i didnt contest the early sprints then tried to get one about midway, failed, went back in the wheel and sat in for another lap then went again but much earlier. Got about a half a lap up on the chasers and managed to maintain that to the finish scoring a few times and getting the win. Tough night for me but at least ended on a positive note!

Good night of racing tonight. First race was a short scratch and i did nothing. 2nd race was a longer scratch and i went with 9 to go which seems to be a recurring theme of foolishness each week :D  Had a reasonable gap but got caught just before the bell. Next was points race, i got a couple of 4ths which wasn't good enough. I cant seem to sprint anymore. Last was a devil - the first one ive raced since pre-Covid and eliminated about half way. Anyway enjoyable night - unlike me the Jets are all going well at the moment!

At least you can unleash your feeble sprint , all I can do is keep my tubs inflated and clean my track bike.😂
