Pretty uneventful stage although the leaders did take the wrong route about halfway through. oops. I pretty much chilled all day as it was super hilly again. over 3000 feet of climbing and a big one at the finish. I tried to go with the climbers over the big hill and blew to bits! Blew so bad the field went right past me! haha.. I gathered my senses and chased back onto the field on the flat section and finished in the field. I think 10 guys were away by a couple minutes.
I just don't have the fitness right now to go up hills but its all good training and have to keep telling myself that I am hear for training this year and not to win everything like the past years. Don't get me wrong I will still give it a go but its a bit of a different mindset by myself racing against teams of 8 guys.. Im used to have the 8 man team...
Today is another hilly one with some huge climbs. Just gonna try to survive and get onto tomorrow's crit. Here is a nice article in my hometown paper about me and the race tomorrow. enjoy!
