7th Points event of the season for STL region. I need to really start picking it up, or I really won’t make Top 20 Index this year. Fortunately for me, this course was all momentum – finally! And with that, my best event of all time! I managed 12th in index, which I’ve done before, but more importantly, only 0.874 behind in time on a fairly long course. Fastest time was a 54.590, which I did on my 4th run. I ran at an accelerated pace, as I needed to get out of there early, and I’m not sure whether that hurt or helped my cause – running the course over and over was nice, but definitely put too much heat into the tires. Regardless, though I wasn’t too pleased with my run, definitely happy with the results. Also was the closest I’ve been in a while to the SI in my class, which makes sense given the course.
Things to work on (Mini):
- Try to carry a little more speed in corners.
- Take a little more risk in distance to cones
- Slalom faster, focus on backsiding
- 4/9ths tank
- Ran 40/48
- Pax Points: 9,799
- Distance from 10th: 0.18s
- 2016 Runs: 83 in the Mini (+6 me)
2016 Run Count: 97 (+6 Mini)
