All is right in my racing world. My flabby ass is comfortably straddling mid packness. Ahhhhhh.... it feels good. The results from the Cranky Monkey 9 Hour were posted. Here are some observations....
Solo by class- I finished 7th out of 15 in my class. Upper mid pack, or back of the front pack? Hmmm. I also noticed that my semi conscious decision to miss the chance for a 9th lap had no REAL baring on my position. Had I gone out, it would have moved me up to 6th and taken me out of the mid pack. And that is crazy talk.
Had I raced Solo Open- I would have finished in 9th place out of 21. There were 20 in the class, but if I had raced in that class it would have be 21. Again- right in the mid back straddle zone.
Rocking my mid packness & my new favorite bike.
Overall Results- I finished 81st out of 160 teams. AGAIN with a full on straddle of the mid pack. Some racer types would be disappointed with these results. Not me. The mid pack is my domain. For me to fall from it is to fail. Then again, some folks get pissed because they always finish 2nd.
There were no photos to accompany tonight's post. In my Google search for appropriate photos, I saw WAY more than I wanted to see. Who knew Googling "straddle" could turn up Flickr groups dedicated to chubby bearded men in wrestling trunks, you guessed it- straddling?? Yikes!! Then on the other end it was a lot of pics of strippers and porn stars and well as a "crime fighting" position guide dedicated to Christian Nymphos. Again I say "YIKES!!" Google is a dangerous, dangerous, search engine. I feel like I need to take a shower. And/Or erase my web history.
