Another kermis today, this time just 5km away in Oostkamp. The course was completely flat but with a bunch of corners. Each lap was 5km and we had 20 laps. The race went about like the last one for me. But I am learning a lot on how to hang on. Bernard (the team director) says I am doing fine, I just have a lot to learn and get used to. A big differnce from racing in the states is that they try to go as hard as possible here. Basically, they try to break the field up as many times as possible. Eventually most of the field gets pulled and the strongest and most combative racers win. This makes even sitting in is a difficult task. Corey was our best finisher today coming in 10th place. Everyone agreed it was a fast, hard race today.
