Thursday evening

We got everything in the car and went to the 305 around 16.30 h. Jan-Marcel warmed up on Sjaaks bike which is stationed in the trainer Jun brought for us. More familiar faces were present this evening, George Leone was there with some of the CalPoly students. Tonight was really windy. Three heats again, with Jan-Marcel in the second heat as the second bike. Damjan was in front of him. Thomas started Jan-Marcel for his run. This was a bit more challenging due to the wind. Jan-Marcel was not riding very fast, the wind was gusty and pretty strong. In the last heat only three bikes started; Gareth, Greg and Todd.

It was a lot easier to get Jan-Marcel out of the bike this evening. This time he got out himself, yesterday we had to help him out of it. After all the heats were done, we went back to the hotel to put some things back in the room and the bike in the corridor. Now we are in the Civic Center to hear what speed Jan-Marcel had. It won't be fast.

Jun always announces the speeds. This evening Jan-Marcel ran 70 mph. When the meeting finishes we wil go to the Chinese restaurant again to get a meal.
