This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

Default Skate of the Union race - results.

overall race report at http://www.inlineplanet.com/11/09/sotu.html

but my story here.....
……. and go. Easy and confident off the line we all nicely and very organized fell into a 2 skater paceline or two for an easy first 5 laps with around 25 of us. Someone went down, hitting a cone, on lap 3 but popped up and rejoined. When Eddy Matzger decided he was warmed up after 5 laps he decided it was time to go. Around 10 to15 people stayed on but alas I did not and fell back joining up with Kent G, (1/2 marathon winner) and Elisabeth White (1st place woman) we worked the net 3 laps and caught 2 lone Pro Vet skaters (Gary Johnson) continuing our push. This worked for 4 laps till Kent’s finish. Shortly after Elisabeth fell off and we picked up one more. The four of us worked it for the next couple of laps and even lapping the girls and pulled their paceline. All was good until Eddy M. lapped us and encouraged Gary Johnson to skate with him. The other 3 of us did not follow, and Johnson was back with us within a half lap. At around lap 16 Brian Oswald lapped us. Around lap 18 the next chase pack lapped us and we all jumped on. However I was just finished my pull and was not in shape for the sprint. Bingo, classic Sheldon, I was solo pushing hard always at 100 yards. 1 lap later someone went down from ahead pack and I was able to catch them momentary but the hard push did me in and I couldn’t hold on again. Looking back I released that there was nobody even close to catching me I skated the next 5 laps solo for 15th place, 4th place Pro Vet.
I am getting there. I was very comfortable with the paceline dynamics and didn’t do anything stupid. I think I was a bit dehydrated by the end as I lost my water bottle early. I also pulled more than my share causing me to lose podium. I think it was necessary however to keep the pace up.
I’m not sure of my time as of now but I know it was less than 1:23 for 26.5mi, which is my personal best.

I don't see Simmon's Devin Firek in the results. He was in the initial lead pack and thought he finished in the chase pack.
