We had the prospects for some really exciting racing this morning, but there were a lot of scratches. Notably, Aerovelo was down for running in three heats with all three riders, but they neglected to tell anyone that they weren’t showing up. Additionally, Christien was slated to run, but Velox4 started developing problems with their viewscreens, and so they had to scratch.
Tom, racer, builder and blogger, was hanging out at timing for his 50th birthday!
Damjan was able to post his fastest time of the week thus far at just under 70 mph, but the wind was not legal.
There were two runs from 2.5 miles, which were put after the 5 mile runs, and as a result, the wind was very high. Both Teagan and Alan were able to improve their speeds, even with a brutal crosswind. Alan was using the entire road, and his wind reading of 1165 fpm (13 mph) was a record for the week thus far.
