races 2006 to April 2008

Raced a bunch of crits, 1 masters only TT, a few road races and one stage race and 4 times on the track.

Best results:
7th place of 20+ in the Fort Worth, TX Wednesday night crit series
Road: Have yet to not get dropped.
Stage: Finished the first 2 stages within the time cutoff, but well off the pace, DNF the final stage
Track: 6th of 14 in the 35+/Cat 4 category (omnium) once in April 2008
Time Trial: Dead last...masters classes are full of former Cat1 - 3 racers.

Upgraded from Cat 5 to 4 in October 2007 to force myself to train harder.

My best race ever was the Tinbutt in 1996. UMCA 12 hour time trial...156 miles.

While this does not sound terribly impressive, I have gone from getting dropped in the Plano, TX Tuesday night crit series 'C' race to getting dropped late in the 'B' race. My times/avg. speed this year would have won every C race last year. That's pretty cool.

Short version of 2 years of racing history :)
