Totally rooted have today's racing. Not looking forward to how I feel in the morning. :oops:

Well the wrap up from today..................very disappointed. 😢

No warm up on the Track, don't know what the hell that was about, couldn't fire for the heat of the Malcolm Kamp Wheel Race. Then came the 200mtr qualifying. I did a woeful 13.6 for than and was totally disgusted in that time but the legs just wouldn't go but wasn't the slowest. Then the Tempo race was a complete waste of time.

First round of the sprints yeah nuffin to see here (2nd). The following round the two girls went with a lap n a half to go and I'm, seriously, that far out but said stuff it after they'd pulled 30mtrs out of me and I decided to have a dig and got 2nd. I then said I'm out now, my body is in pain my legs wouldn't go and my head was off with the space cadets, yep, I'd had enough.

So sitting there minding my own business, talkin to Bruce and Ian, comes up and says............put ya shoes on Gary. What, I told ya that I'm finished. Yep I know that, put ya shoes on, there's only two of you in this round. Me, being the idiot says.........seriously I'm knackered big time but okay, can't have the poor bloke riding around by himself, so I put my shoes and lines up. I said to him first...............I got nuffin, I buggered be on belief and he replies..........so am I. So we made a gentlemen's agreement to ride around at a sensible pace and then let it happen at the end for a bit of a show. 😎
Well bugger me, came around for the bell and he was up high and I was about middle of the Track, so I did a quick (well don't laugh, it was quick for my level of fitness) dive down and kicked and took off and just drove it all the way to the line and got that heat. Then when he caught up to me he said.........You rode that quicker than your qualifying ride. He may have been right but it was strange how from the jump, everything felt good, so on the very last ride, I finally aligned the stars for a half decent ride.
That's it for tonight, I've nearly finished my beer and I'm goin to bed and not looking forward to how I feel in the morning.

I don't disagree Warty, but I would prefer a Carbon one for some compliance
Your tyres, seat stays and wheels are what should be supplying the compliance. The seat post is at about 73degeees where 90 is vertical so harder to supply compliance I'd have thought.

Well they have responded. They asked me to keep the seat post in the frame. Oh well. To late for that I said. So see what they say now. I sent them the pics.
