In fact all of my rides/races are public if your so inclined: mbobelak
Strava: Mike Bobelak Sr.
As far as what I did or didn't do, have done, or other...
I've ridden on average 430-500 miles a month from Feb- today(mostly 1 hour lunch rides, TNW's, Wed eve road ride)
I am still a "Clydesdale" (202-5)
I suck at climbing (see ^), so I have been working on that.(alot)
I raced BMX at a "Expert " level from '84-'92, thats where the "flow" and downhill "speed" comes from. raced a few MTB races in the early 90's ,( back when a ridged fork was the only fork, and 50psi in a Smoke/Dart was the shiznit ), then walked away for 15+ years( married, got fat, kids, real job....)
AS far as yesterday, Larry blew the whistle and I went into "Dirt Crit "/ BMX mode, and hammered . Honestly I didn't want to be in front on lap 1( I'd go too hard and pop) ,thankfully Brett came around me and we rode at a good pace up Love- GP, we chatted a bit (both hoping to use this race to get a upgrade), we worked together thru" traffic", and our mixed skills kept each other "in check" . Lap 3 Brett dropped me on the climb, I recovered across GP, and got a clean run on R/C and pulled him back. On the double track I passed (not sure if Brett was "done" or let me by?) used Jay as my "rabbit " to charge the finish.
Big Thanks to:
Everyone talking while racing, and allowing clean passing . (Sorry, Jackie for the "fly by" pass)
