In Tulsa. Getting place in finals didn't come too easy. Anyway after getting it I had 8 hours waiting before the finals. Finally it's on. I don't put my gear on yet, cos I have still time. There is first open classes and then comes cruisers. I go to parking lot to warm up. Couple sprints.. I feel just great! One more sprint, I unclipped, hips too handlebar and I fly over. I hit my head to ground, roll over. My other shoe it still clipped in so bike rolls over with me..
I'm lying in the groung. Ou shit, did I brake my bike?? I get up, bike is ok. OMG, am I ok?? I feel pain in my head, it's not that bad.. I sit down for a while. Elbow and shoulder are stiff but those get better soon. I go to fix my wounds and put gears on.
Hey, pull yourself together now! I get back on bike. Couple good gates could make me feel better. I go to practice to get-a-gate place. Couple gates.. and I unclip again! Nothing happens, but I'm starting to get really unconfident!! Cruisers have started so I got go.
It tooks like forever that they get us to gate. On the queue girls are talking how track is worn out. Inside of the first turn is really slipery. I see from the screen how everyone are crashing in first turn.. I'm going from gate 1
Ok we go. I planned to push other ones out on the first straight but that's not really happening. Turn comes. I don't still push others. I come out as 4th. Couple extra pedals and I can pass the 3th. I take those, even on rythm section, but it doesn't help cos I just spin out. My gear is way too small 39/18.
I finnish 4th. I'm not dissapointed but far from happy also. I wish I could remember everything I have learned during this Olen neljäs. En kovin pettynyt, mutta en tyytyväinenkään. Kumpa kaikki opitut asiat saisi taltioitua johonkin.. Mahtava viikonloppu!!
