5th!! By only 0.043s. And another second out my PB for a 2.17.038 lap! Did the mahi, got the treats. Can’t believe it. Stoked as hell. I truly didn’t think that I could pull that out my ass! But you try anyway yeah?! Congrats to Orlando who took 2 wins this weekend, you rode out yah skin dude!
I got a solid start and pushed as hard as I could to hang onto the back of the front pack. Rienk and I went head to head most of the race. Unfortunately letting Sebastian get away as we attacked each other. He let me lead the last lap which is always an ominous sign and I was expecting a huge lunge from him up the inside of the GT chicane. But it didn’t come. He tried with better drive to the line and I look it by a nose, just 0.043s. Nuts. I think I made up a small amount of time trying a few small things in my lap but for sure slipstreaming Rienk helped me to that time. I highly rate Rienk as a rider, he’s been racing forever, so it was awesome to battle and learn from him. Cheers for the awesome race!
