Was a fun weekend with a cool race in Cincy in Hyde Park on Sat and Grandview Heights on Sunday. The fields were pretty stacked this year and we had 7 guys both days. My race ended a lap to early on Saturday night as Chad and I got caught in a crash coming out of the hairpin. Bummer. Was feeling pretty good and sitting pretty.
Sunday was a tough race as it was super fast again. I rode for the team and was trying to help Crater (guest riding for us) and Chad out as much as possible. I covered as many moves and such as I could but I blew to bits a little over halfway. The race finally split in the last 10 laps with Jake and Crater making the front group. Jake gave a great lead out and Crater gave it a go but came up a little short as Emile Abraham (Aero Cat Cycling Team) got him on the line. Emile had a great weekend winning both races.
I am pleased as my fitness is heading in the right direction. Another couple weeks and I should be full gas. Heading down to Louisville to do the Master National Crit Champs on Sat. Should be a fun one.
Here are some pics from the weekend.
