Mid-Ohio Grand Prix

Today's race was on the world famous car race track Mid-Ohio. Super cool circuit that had 2 little rises in it and a bunch of cool twist and turns. It was made a bit harder with a pretty stiff wind in your face up both the hills and of course it was raining.. can't get away from this damn rain!
The 1st lap was pretty interesting as the race course looked like glass... I took it pretty easy through the 1st couple downhill turns to make sure I wasn't gonna fall on my face. After the 1st lap I had it dialed and the race was on. A&F was represented by myself, Tim Swain, Jimmy B and Jimmy Mac... The race started getting pretty aggressive and after following Paul Martin on an attack I went straight after him finding myself off with 1 other guy. Paul's teammate Jeff came across and we were 3. We worked well together and then another group came across a lap later that contained Jimmy Mac... We were 9 strong.. 2 A&F and 2 Roadhouse. This was the break as we seemed to work pretty well together and it was easier getting around the turns with less guys. I was feeling pretty decent.. nothing great but wasn't struggling. With 4 laps to go the attacks started and I was on pretty much everything.. The Roadhouse boys taking turns attacking us and the last time Paul went I had no answer. I tried to go over the top of the hill and out of the blue my hamstring just locked up.. like total lock.. like I can't pedal lock.... so not only did Paul ride away from me but 3 other guys did as well. After I got my cramp worked out I latched on with Jeff Braumberger from Roadhouse and we were not far behind with 2 laps to go.... I kept having to stop and get my cramp out and was pretty much slowing Jeff down but we still tried to get back but never did. In the end Jeff and I finished together and I was 6th. Jimmy Mac ended up 3rd. Pretty disappointing for me considering I was feeling pretty decent and was looking forward to a little head to head battle with Paul. Not sure where the cramp came from.. just out of the blue.. maybe too much morning coffee??...haha.. that's not possible. Oh well, back into next weekend....
