Friday follow up results

As I was saying, we rode through the back straight, turns 3 and 4 on lap one of 2 keeping the same relationship, more speed as we get the bell lap, into 1, I see my chance, stand and jump barely getting by and under him into the lane accelerating out of the saddle almost to 3 and then power to the finish with Chip coming over in the last 20 to 30 meters. At least I made him work for this win.
Because we had one no show I got a by ride and automatically got third, I just had to be present at the start line ready to ride to collect the bronze. Usually you have to get on the track and walk over the finish line but masters is a little more lax and with the late schedule I didn’t need to.
More rides to finish the Thursday schedule and then awards, only 3 of us on the podium for our age group, everyone else had 5. (Masters give medals all the way down to 5th).
Time to pack up, go to lunch and then veg out all the rest of the day and evening at the hotel.
I am a little disappointed to not be able to race all my sprint rides even if it might mean 4th rather than 3rd but if you don’t show, no glory.
Tomorrow, Saturday evening, one more race, a points race for fun.
They can’t all be no shows for tomorrow.
