missing post from Friday

My catalogue of injuries are simply
A) rattled head
B) abrasians on my left arm from landing on rit repeatedly when flippinge
C) sore right foot - hurts to put weight on at first
D) angry muscle on lower left back just above hip

I just went back out on the Superstock bike. It hurts to transition from left side of the bike to the right but I can cope. I think I got back to a reasonable speed.

None of the problems mentioned above hurt all that much. They just remind me to be gentle on the brakes...

8th in Solo Endurance

I had the superbike back together but hadn't had a chance to test it... so I took the Superstock out for the Solo Endurance. The front forks kept bottoming out and pushing the front, and I just didn't have the oomph of the Superbikes on the straights. I'm fairly unhappy with my result.

sore in practice this morning

Changing rebound on the Superstock helped in morning practice, although I was sore and not up to speed. I stopped in the hot pit and dropped rear compression and got better traction out of the last corner.

The superbike felt much better than the superstock without any changing anything, post-crash even :-)

My only worry is that I can barely move my right foot in long corners. When I came in I rewrapped it on a way which should bind it up less in the boot. I hope it helps.

Racetek kindly gave me some fork oil so we've added 15ml to each fork leg and backed off preload. It should help... but nothing like going out to race with an untested config.

3rd in Superstock

2nd into turn 1, but Laslo passed me into turn 2. I settled behind him but made some early mistakes that gave him a 2 second gap. I reeled him in near the end but not close enough to make a pass.

6th in Superbike

I ended up right behind Laslo again in turn 1 so I spent 6 laps watching where he was faster and then reeled him in and passed him on the final lap.

9th in Formula2

Dang those 125 kids are fast.

I finished 2 seconds behind Zoran, just like the previous race.
