This morning the weather appeared a lot better than yesterday. All runs were cancelled yesterday, because of strong winds and a bit of rain. This morning everything appeared a lot better. We got up at 5.50 and got everything ready. At 6.15 it was clear that the morning runs were held as planned. We headed out to the 305.
Jan-Marcel was the first rider in the first heat. He came through the timing traps with a speed of 57.66 mph. The chain did come off again during the run. This time on the left side. We immediately got it fixed after the run. Fortunately tools were available to us. Some we brought ourselves, some were borrowed from others, like the files and a big plier. Now the chain is a bit tighter.
Then we went to the start of the 5 mile run. Jan-Marcel was in the second and last run, together with Liz. We could use the warm-up bike from Liverpool, really appreciate that guys!
The 5 mile run went fine, he had a speed of 76.02 mph. Running twice in the morning is a bit tiring, especially since we're a bit short on sleep. Todd did 81 mph this morning, Ellen has a new female trike record.
Jan-Marcel is on the list for the third run this evening. Not for tomorrow morning, a bit more sleep would be nice.
