Schaeffer Farms and landing in the 3rd spot...AGAIN!
Last year at Schaeffer I rode my old Paragon, which is geared of course. Why, cause it was there I suppose. I turned in a 49:48 and 49:15 which landed me in the 4th spot. Last lap was faster than my first, but I struggled for the last 2 miles, got passed by Ben and that was that. This year's goal was, obviously to do better than last year in the SS class. I have to admit that I am a stats nut. So I look over past times of others as well as my own to see where improvements can be made to my training plan. There are a few guys that are just FAST as something you would not want to normally step in. Ethan Lindbloom, Shane Karr, Blake Bricker and my newfound friend Jonathan Houghton. So when I see these guys registered, I know I had better be on my game. I wish it were more like a game, say...hmmm...Trouble; that way if I land on them, they get sent back to start.
So another spot on the podium for the Crew and I am now leading in points with 75, so things are looking pretty good right now and the last race is Fountainhead...aaarrrggh!
