Here is a quick report from last weeks opening night of Boogie Nights, track bike race series in Prospect Park.
from event organizer: Al,
There were more than 25 racers in the B field, 13 racers in the A field with about 50 spectators.
I was really surprised and happy with the turnout. We had a bit of rain which discouraged a few racers, but all in all it worked out really well.
The 3 lap B finish was:
5. Chris Ell
8. Joe (Prime winner)
9. Anthony C
13. Inge (1st Female)
16. Justin Talent
The 4 lap A Field finish was:
1. Neil Bezdek
2. Cooper Ray
3. Paul Burrows
4. Giancarlo Bianchi
6. Al Barouh
7. Jody Pogue
8. Dave Trimble
9. Mattio Montesano
13. Justin (DNF)
Next week is the 3 person Team Time Trial
Both the A and B field must complete two laps.
We will let a team go every 30 seconds starting with the B field and ending with the A field. I’ll have multiple stop watches going and race numbers will be supplied to all teams.
Rules: Time will be stopped when the 3rd racer of the team crosses the finish line. If one racer flats during the race (which happened last year) the two remaining members will be allowed to complete the course and their time stands.
Have a really good warmup before your start.
Rock a bigger gear than you used in the scratch.
Don’t kill yourselves on the hill.
