Back On The Boards

On Tuesday night I was back at Derby Arena to race in the Track League after giving more focus on the road over the past couple of months. It showed as well with knowing from the warm up that my track legs were a little rusty and it would take a bit of getting use too.

The first race of the night was a 25 lap scratch race, where unfortunately after pulling off the front I totally missed the back wheel of the race and was unable to get back on meaning I had an early exit from the race. Next was the Elimination were I was second to being eliminated. I then managed to fair a little better in the points race where I was able to finish the race. I the last race which was a 40 lap scratch race with a sprint in the middle I was able to take 5th place feeling much better than at the start of the night.

After a shakey start I was pleased to come away with a placing and hopefully I will be getting a little more used to it.
