Results are posted at www.tailwind.net with lap times. Photo links to follow soon, there should be tons, as there where cameras everywhere for all races.
B race: Turns out I was about a 50 seconds behind 7th place, and almost 2 minutes away from 6th. If only...
Lap times: 8:07 8:42 8:43 8:46 8:37 for total time 42:56
MAX HR was 176, avg 168, min 164.
Master's 35+ lap times: 8:59 8:52 8:40 10:40(ouch) 9:24 total 46:36
MAX HR was 169, avg 158.
I had backed off quite a bit for the second race. Times were not quite as consistent as I first thought, but still pretty close. I really think I beat myself sitting on the first lap, until I decided to go in hunt of others. 10-15 seconds the first two laps is quite a bit.
Couple of points to make, if we assume I lost 2.5 minutes to the wreck and ensuing carnage, not totally out of the question, since it means I would have averaged over 8:40 for those two laps... that would have put me in 15th in the 35+ and 22nd overall. As it was, I was 22nd and 35th out of the 40 master's level racers. So 13 guys passed me during the fourth lap! Wow! I'm still happy with my times being my second race of the day.
...and 8:40 lap times would have had me WAY back in the elite race. Winning lap times were just under 7 minutes. I may have lasted 4 of the 8 laps they did before getting lapped and pulled. Maybe I won't pony up for a UCI license for a while.
