Won a race once. AND DON'T YOU EVER FORGET IT

  • I r a wiener

    a trophyDespite my shouler still not being 100% i headed on down to Leisure Lakes on sunday to see how i faired over the 2006-6 winter series.

    I won, with 55 out of a possible 60 points from the 3 races i did. Woo! As a result i got the trophy you see to the left there (to go with all the other trophy/plates etc i’ve won there) and £30…which means i made a profit from riding bikes!* Woo again!

    Of course i ploughed my hard won profit straight back in to the shop, but hey, i still made money!

    I stuck around for that day’s race, pre-rode the course and decided that my shoulder was comfortable enough to race, provided i took it easy through the trees. So i did, and i won again, woo! I didn’t travel anywhere near as fast as i was at the end of the last summer series (after the transalp), in fact i was 1-2 gears lower round the whole course, but it was still enough to comfortably finish first, woo once more!

    *each race costs £5, i did 3, which cost £15…so i doubled my money :o)

    “seniors”
    which is everything from sport to elite (i normally get beaten by the elites, suprisingly)
