studley, it's ON.

wednesday nights are back, baby!  god, am i SO happy track racing is starting.  road is so...... i dunno..... boring.

at my first road race this year everyone is all like: "oh wow, you are going to do a *road* race-- well, good luck" -- as if i was incapable of riding 50 miles.  no, i'm not incapable. road races are just *boring*.  thank god all that road mumbo jumbo is over, now, and the real racing season begins!

so because i placed 5th in the scratch race, that meant i got to do the combined A/B points race for 40 laps (instead of the combined B/C race for 20 laps).  

so i informed studley of this and told him: "nole! we are racing together again!  remember that time i beat you in an omnium?"  this was when we had both first started racing.  it was my 3rd track race ever, and his 1st.  i like to remind nole of this every now and again, to keep it real.
let's review that night: july 18, 2007

i beat nole in the omnium... two scratch races and the combined B/C points race.  he beat me in the miss n out.
but this time, i got some more details from nole on how he remembers the evening.

"beth, you know what i remember the most about that race?  it was the last sprint and someone comes around me in the last straight away and i think: 'daaaaamn, that's a big ass' as i was getting passed... and then i realized it was a chick."

i gave myself a side stitch from laughing so hard on this one.  studley thinks i have a big ass.

so we line up for the 40 laps points race and in the roll out i am up front and nole starts heckling me... "beth enjoy it up there in front, cause this will be the last time you see it."  and then after about 5 laps he starts heckling me again about my big ass.  man, it's so on.

i am sad to report that studley beat me in that points race.  (but i did beat kieran.)

next time, gadget. next time.

all that matters is that you beat Keiran.

well, it doesn't really count cause he pulled out of the race, but i only like to tell half-truths in my blog posts.
