Nutmeg Classic Criterium,Whaling City Cyclone



Saturday Lynn raced the Nutmeg Classic Criterium. Finally! She got to race in a straight cat 4 race. Lynn finished strong, the cat 4 group actually caught the 3s! I was unable to race due to unforeseen circumstances, was able to get a 50plus tri-state ride in.

Sunday, I was able to sneak in one race, the Whaling City Cyclone. I raced the 35plus masters event. I had no warm up, arriving 15 minutes before the start. The first two laps of the very technical course were a flat out sprint. Once things began to settle, my legs cleared, I really began to enjoy myself. I felt like Valentino Rossi(he is a very fast Italian motorcycle racer), powering through the curves single file. I really had a great time, it's been a while since I've said that about a bike race. Anyway, as Valentino would say "Amo andare molto digiunare!"

Ninigret on Wednesday, Cox Classic Saturday, Keith Berger Sunday, speedway under the lights Monday!
