Infineon races

So I wasn't going to race with AFM this weekend, but somehow I never got around to doing the 30 minutes worth of work required to make my small bikes race-able. So I decided that this meant I really wanted to do big bike racing this weekend :-)

Unfortunately, having no points meant I was gridded in the back. 72nd on the grid for Formula IV for instance. In every race I gained at least 10 places, but it's hard work coming through slower riders. Believe it or not, it's easier to pass a faster rider. They act in predictable ways. When you're going slow enough, you can do pretty much anything. When you go fast, you're pretty much guaranteed to be on the racing line.

So I did well, but ... well, I mean it's just dang hard to be happy about coming in 37th! Even if I did start 72nd in that race...
