Floyd Bennett Field Report

The legs felt like jello yesterday but still raced ok. It was my first top 10 finish at floyd bennett field - riding with category 3&4 guys.

It might have something to do with the new red veloflex tires that I'm riding on.

I pulled a few times in breakaway attempts but nothing stuck. For the sprint I wound it up in a nice heavy gear but didn't get fast enough and didn't have a leadout.

56 starters
finish: 8th or 9th place (top 5 scored)
top speed: 34mph (wind on my back)
sprint speed: 28mph
