The last thing I need is a frame failure at 30mph on an asphalt track. I am looking around for a rear wheel and likely a larger front chainring. The ring I have on it is a 42t and I am thinking a 48 would be more appropriate.
On the training front, Westlake went well last night. I felt good and was never close to getting dropped. We did around 25 laps for 50 miles of racing action. With 2 to go, Rudy, Shawn, Gary B. and 1 or 2 others got a gap, however the surging pack caught them on the last lap. I was in GREAT position about 4th or 5th wheel behind RGF riders Martin and Chernowski at about 4oom. The started their sprint and I could not make the acceleration from 29-30 to 33-36 to stay on their wheels. Oh well, next time. At least I was in the right position, now just need to work on the high speed sprinting. Commuted into work yesterday for 40 miles round trip at about 19 mph average. Twin Sizzler tommorrow.
