This was likely the closest I’ve ever come in a sprint on or off the track. This was the first sprint of a points race, part of Trackfest II, at the Commonwealth Legacy Velodrome in the Westshore community. I was bested by an inch or so by veteran track racer Charles Durrant. Chuck is pretty savvy, and I usually watch what he’s up to in any race. He can sprint. The next points sprint, I made sure to win by a few lengths. But I paid for that effort, dropping off when an attack surged just after the sprint. I ended the race in 5th place with 8 points.
