We opened our winter season with four laps in the molten lava of the Volcano Circuit in Watopia. We had a big NCC field of six riders in the B’s, along with Michael and Tim in the C field. The B race hung together pretty tightly all the way through, until an early break in the final sprint shattered the field. We were all slow to respond to this, and five riders got away clear, leaving the rest of us sprinting for minor placings. In the C group, it looked like Michael and Tim were contending with a similar early break, as they both sprinted for approximately forever, and both scored top-ten placements.
