Hey hey hey now, i was NOT riding over my head. if i was i would fully admit to it. i kindof wish i was, then i would have something to blame it on, but i'm not really sure what happend.
i got the bump at lunchtime, went out and did 2 full sessions tearing it up, having honestly the best time ever on a track. 3rd session, i backed down just a little bit, still running 20's, was feeling a little tired so i didn't want to push hard, i was running alone, started to come into T7, little brakes, downshifted one gear like i always do, but when i came out the clutch, the RPMs did not sound right, (still not leaned over at this point) i went to look down at the tach, and before i could, i felt the ground coming up fast. Hit headfirst, then tumbled, i felt the bike land on my right foot, and came to a stop.
foot is all bruised up, but thats all, took the day off work today, hopefully i can return tomarrow.
THANK YOU, too all the CRs, who told me i was ready to go to A. You were not wrong. i will admit i was scared to go out that first session, but i felt so comfortable running in A that my nerves were gone within a couple laps. even after we went almost 6 wide into T1
i feel like a complete jackass going down in my first day in A, i even thought that in my head as i skipped across the pavement.
another THANKS to the Putnam Park staff. I have never been down before, and those people were at my side before i could even clear the grass off my face.
