Race: Masters & Rookies Track Races/Track
Location: Trexlertown, PA
Rider(s): Jo Johnson
Another FUN day at the track although it was really hot and humid. A good field of 17 women this day gave me plenty of riders to go after. First race was a 6 lap scratch which was a really quick warm up race for me. I went out into the lead and was quickly swallowed up and spit out the back. But I think I managed not to be last. Next race was a 10 lap Point a Lap. I knew this would be quick so I went to the front again but did not stay long. I was in the group for several laps then was dropped a bit. Not wanting to be at the back, I redoubled my efforts to catch 4 riders and close on the group. The last race was an Elimination where one rider at the back is eliminated each lap. My goal was to stay in the group and not be the first one out. Each lap got just a bit faster than the last and I stayed in the group for 4 laps which is an improvement. We were only doing 30 mph!
Result: 6 lap scratch; 10th
10 lap Point a Lap; 11th
