First race with the team in Kirkwood, PA. Where is that exactly? Well pretty much in the middle of nowhere and honest to god the most traffic we saw on the way in and out was Amish horse and buggy. So rolling terrain that was very wide open with tons of wind.
A nice size field showed up, around 100 riders showed up for our race. Right from the gun racing was on and soon enough Miles, Clayton and myself found ourself''s in a nice group rolling away on the second of 8 laps. We had 8 or so riders, but on the following lap we had it widdeld down to just the 3 of us and two passengers. We continued to roll away from the field as the boys behind kept everything in check.
So we just continued to ride around and fight the monster head wind on the longest stretch and extend our lead heading into the last lap. Miles threw it down just before the last lap and an Empire rider went in pursuit and caught up. Of course the other rider with us, Ramon, I believe, well at least that is whose bike he was on, tried chasing for a bit before he gave up. Up the road Miles riding like an animal thew down again and dropped his companion. Now it was time to go get him, and eventually I found myself alone chasing him. I caught up and saw Miles had a sizable gap and kept it at a pace that would keep us ahead of the other rider and just far enough behind Miles.
Miles continued to rock it out and won and I rolled in with the other guy for 3rd. Clayton came in with his companion for 5th, and I believe Erdelyi cleaned up the rest with a 6th place finish out of group that had got away with two laps remaining. Apparently he had a nice lead out from Geronimo. So a great continuation of the racing season. Soon enough we will be doing races together that won't be months apart like the last two.
That's all from camp right now. We have dinner reservations for 6, so I better get my butt in gear and get ready to roll. More to come later.
As a side note we saw one Amish buggy pulled up to an ATM at a bank and one at the gas station. Interesting to say the least.
