Again, THANK YOU to the CR's! I dont think people take the time to consider the emotional and physical drain of being a CR as it relates to traffic management, display of proper body position without the required pace for centrifugal force and gravity to keep you on the bike, mental processing of bike numbers and coaching tips they can give that rider at the end of a session, etc.
Aww hell - I will try to name names. (If i skip some I am sorry)
Tony Cortese (I dont think he is on this board) - For extensive coaching when I fist started.
A name I dont remember, he was a polar optics rider. For B group pulls and after session advice.
Ron Hix and Brian Wink for B group hazing and getting me used to close passes and cutting inside me to teach me the importance of hitting the apex.
Also to Ron for secretly shadowing me for the bump to I.
Steve Pallela for even handed "explanation" of my indescretions.
Nolan and Kim for suspension help on a cold cold January Saturday, as well as coaching off the track on some fun group rides.
Greg Kotlinski for showing me how hard I should be hitting the carousel
And again to Wink and all of his cohorts for my "I" group session where I was being evaluated. I cant imagine how hard it is to ride under your pace, orchestrate situational anomalies with the help of the other coaches on the track, stuff someone gently, and create situations where the riders decision making can be evaluated.
