January 25th: In the quest to become a “no name cat 1”, I’m always chasing points. Cal Aggie was the first chance for USAC points in 2014!! So of course I was there.
Or the possibility of points, if you can get up in the top 6.
Long story short: I ended up on the “podium”. Points!! (see above)
Little bit longer story: A bit of luck, and a lot of chasing - a bunch of “big name cat 1’s and ex pros” crashed out in the last two laps, leaving openings for no-name guys like me.
That’s when I found myself sitting on Sprinter Guy’s leadout train (see winner above) in the last 300m!! Tried to get the jump on him but it didn’t work out.
Good times though, and points were taken.
