Probably not, but I think I found my calling. I had my first race on Thursday at Milton, Ontario’s Track 2000. I consistently stayed in 2nd place but I still have a lot to learn; like getting myself set up before the gate drops and knowing how to take advantage of the berm and sneaking pass people.
I was probably the worse dressed there (or best depending how you see it), me and my tights and sweater, competing against people in full race gear. I also had to borrow my boyfriends full-face helmet and he had to borrow my bike (which has brakes) between runs. Everyone was super nice, encouraging and I’m already looking and training for the next race.
