I heard something scraping for a couple of laps and just couldn't figure it out until we slowed down to exit, then i was like " oh " when i looked down..

do you know what kind of times you were doing in the A group?

Looks like around 2 flat was the fastest from the couple sessions I did. Just going by the gopro footage, didn't have the laptimer on at all that day.

It might be due to the gearing on the bike. It is quite fast at low gears but not too fast in top end and that also explains why i cant improve much from the 207 at that track. And because i still need alot more practice

running each and every gear to the top will make a difference, someone rode my bike that day and said they were running out of gear way before the transition but, when i was riding it i had plenty, i was clicking into 6th right at the start/finish line.

I've also got B group sessions 1-3 uploaded to youtube, but they are mostly me leading/following my buddy in the morning.
