The Teginator Tackles The Track
It was Thursday Night Lights at the famed and storied NSC Velodrome. I raced the Cat 4/5 10 Lap Scratch Race and the 10 Lap Miss and Out. The good news, I wasn't last in either race. Among the racers were my teammate Andy Frye along with Paul McKinney, Dan Casper and about ten others. Frye got 2nd in the Miss and Out to Dan Casper's first place. Casper just time trialed it and ran away from everyone. Other racers in other categories included Mike Lyner, Jim Cullen and Mike Lyner in the Cat 3. Plus Timmer, Ben and Joe Dubay and Kevin Schaefer in the Cat 1/2. Lindsey Hamilton, the Dahlman Twins, Barb Harrick and Linda Sone did the women's events. John Thompson showed up to watch. I brought the Masi Coltello along with a drop handlebar for the races. The drop handlebar brought is oversized and I have a regular size stem on the Masi. My mistake. As a result, I had to use a track loaner which was geared way too easy. I wound up spinning out in both races.
