Derby Track League

Tuesday night was week 4 of the Autumn Track League. The nights racing was 25 lap scratch race, 30 lap points race, elimination and a 50 lap scratch race to finish. On arrival I opted to change the saddle over (Specialized Avatar) due to a bit of discomfort with my existing one. After this I made my way over to get ready for the evening.

Starting the night on a good note I managed to finish 5th in the first scratch race. Having not placed in the points race I wanted to come away with a place in the elimination and was rewarded with a 4th which was a very pleasing result. After in the last 50 lap scratch race of the night I managed to take 6th overall in what was a particularly hard race in which the bunch finished very fragmented.

Overall it was another good night. The motorway road works have made the journey home slightly longer recently which has been making recovery all the more important.
