Cresson member day

Post by JeffStrom » Mon Jun 29, 2020 9:19 am

I got to go ride the 1.7 at Cresson on a member day, though I am not an actual Cresson member. I took a few seconds off my fastest time on the 1.7. My average lap time that day was within a few seconds of my best lap time riding with RideSmart. I think this comes down to the lack of traffic. At the most crowded point, there were maybe 10 bikes on the track. And even then, being on the slower end of that group, nobody really slowed me down much, everyone else had to worry about passing me, while I for the most part just tried to stay on my line and focus on what I was doing. I did get pushed off my line by some corner passing, but it wasn't dangerous and I likely could have kept my line if I'd been okay with the lack of separation. I felt like the riders were more professional, which is understandable.
