handmade in Brooklyn
It was 30 degree cold and windy night.
After a couple neutral laps, 85 racers lined up at starting line.
During wait for start, I spoke to Gil, but I knew I spoke to myself.
"Only first few laps are dangerous. no need to do anything crazy."
I started race from bottom of pack. Maybe I relaxed little too much at that moment.
Clip in was smooth, trying to get to front, passing racers.
Jody(Affinity) rode such a relaxed pace, Frank(Boogie Nights B field winner) was rocking so hard.
Looking for my training mates, but they were out of my sight.
After few laps, Jason(Affinity) and Tadashi crashed at hairpin in parking lot.
I tried to catch the pack, but couldn't see how much the gap, rode alone.
Not sure at which lap, I cleared the hairpin and accelerated, and I saw leader pack went into hairpin.
Race director yelled to me "get out the course" at finish line.
My race ended.
