We also had our resident riders - Andrew LaCorte, Kimberly Edwards, Scott Demel and Brian Shea winning the overall Kissena Royale jerseys for their respective categories.

Mike Wilzipeski also continued his impressive form by winning the Cat 4 Miss & Out and the first Keirin heat.

One of our resident multiple time Masters National Champs - Kimberly Edwards mixed it up with the 1,2,3 Keirin Heats and then came back and soundly trashed all the Masters in the Keirin Feature - I got fifth right behind  up and coming junior - Stephanie Torres. Stephanie just came back from Ecuador where she took part in the National Championships there and won four Gold medals.

Keirin effort No 1 - 92 inch gear 48x14

Keirin effort No 2 - 92 inch gear 48 x 14 (notice that 42 mph per hour speed above seems to be Garmin anomaly)

So after getting soundly trashed in the Keirin and Scratch race, I did a flying 200 meter effort after the races were over, this was my first flying 200 meter for the season. Gear used was a 92 inch 48x14 and the time was a 13.63 seconds.
