Another FBF race... maybe the last?

I mostly sat in today, only made one or two efforts. Johanne said he'd give me a good lead out and thought I could place in the top 5. He's a really nice guy. Unfortunately I took 7th. Still, it was a really fun race and I felt comfortable in my tactics... a first for me in road racing. Maybe need to work on max power and the jump for the sprint - although I did pass 2-3 guys in the final 50 yards.

Charlie announced that the parks department might install barricades to block cars from entering floyd bennett field. Although that doesn't sound like a big problem for a bike race it is. Unfortunately every sanctioned bike race needs a pace vehicle.
