Kings Park »Psychic« CX №3

It's Sunday again and time for KPCX №3 -- the last of the Kreb Cycle Kings Park CX series!

Sunday morning, plenty of time for the race start at 10:30am. At 8am still frosty cold, but dry and clear blue sky -- nice. Loading up, driving out there, checking out the course. Very nice, a few more added technical sections, not so many grassy sections -- but one either way slow labyrinth like slow down before the finish stretch. Like. Again RFID timing, and only frame number -- also like a lot -- no ### pinning :-)
The race went off, Py some where second to third row in the start pack. Little sorting out positions passing a few, then sitting some place in no riders land at lap 2&3, eventually doing a little to little... usual "slow down" at lap 2&3, some where GAB Chris had some minor mechanical issue and was catching up again, sitting in for a lap and made up a few spots again -- nice done Chris. Not exactly sure why that slow down is. However. Then waking up and picking up a few spots. Last lap getting a little on fire again... Saw Brian (race leader) approaching from behind where the course folded back at the down hill onto the pavement. Not yet lapped...  Py made it ahead of him through the "labyrinth" but letting him pass at the turn out of it as he got behind Py. About 40 minutes (race "cut off") time while passing the two trees to the finish sprint section, Brian just a few bike length ahead -- well, could have made it look like sprinting for "false" 2nd. Alright, game over now. 16th on preliminary results list.

And big thanks and many Kudos to Carol&Paul for the great post race Holiday celebration with soem Hot Chocolate, Coffee and superb cake :-)


So now Py is just getting a little adjusted for this fun and this is the last CX in LI for the season??? Can we have more?
