lots of things...lots of pictures
so i made it back from the east coast in time to do 3 races in 2 days before i got to take a break. saturday was a track race that i didnt really care about. i was there to spin my legs a little and then do a team sprint, but candi heckled me into racing the omnium. it was ok. i didnt try to hard finished 3rd and got to do some riding with dean tracy.
that night was the mississippi crit. it was kinda my first real crit ever. i didnt a 4/5 crit like 3 years ago and rode off the front and did a race at the pittsburgh oal on a borrowed bike the week before, but this xwas different. like a psycho fast 8 corner crit with gravel, 2 way racing, pot holes of death, flaming rings, jumps, a loop and clowns. well some of those things. it was fast and dangerous and brian had a bad feeling about it, so i told him that if i got a bad feeling, i would quit. with about 3 to go i got a bad feeling, so i quit. there was totally a crash that i might have gotten myself into right afterwards, too. i definatly got what i needed outof the race tho.
the next day was the alpenrose heartbreaker. i raced the madison, keirin and points. daryl and i finished 3rd in the madison. i got 4th in the keirin final. and 3rd in the points race. kenny wiliams unfortunaly broke his collar one in the points race, but still managed to win it.
