I Graduated to Wednesday Nights at the Track

About 5 weeks ago I had my first experience riding in the Velodrome.  Once you take the class you are invited to race on Monday nights, which is considered a learning night where you get lots of support and instruction as you get comfortable riding on the track. 

This week I completed my fourth Monday night of racing.  I got to do three races:

  1. Point-A-Lap (x6): this race you go around the track six times, the first person to finish each lap earns points.  I did terrible in the race. I followed someone sprinting off the front and tied/lost to them in the point lap and then couldn’t keep up the rest of the race.
  2. 3×2: this race you go around the track six times.  Every two laps is a chance to earn points.  The points are 4-deep (1st place = 5 points, 2nd place = 4 points, 3rd place = 3 points, 4th place = 2 points).  This was my best race of the night and I scored 7 points.

  3. 3×3: this is just like the 3×2 except points are every 3rd lap and you go around 9 times.  I was tired by this race and kept up with the pack but didn’t do well with points.

The best part is the I graduated and can now race on Wednesday nights.  On this night they actually have an announcer, music and an audience.  There are also Category 1 and 2 women road racers who can eat me for lunch who race that night.  So I expect that I will encounter a whole new set of challenges.  Time to get some sleep so I have half a chance at keeping up!
