Another stage down, and unfortunately no result yet, but two stages to go. Just feel like I need some more racing at this level before I truly believe I will get that results. That is what happens really when you start racing the circuit in May. I'm sure I and the rest of the team will continue to do our best as our real goals later in the season start to approach.
The team did ride a decent race today and we did ride like a team. We unfortunately missed the early move, but once Health Net started controlling the race we set up our team train near the front. It was awesome seeing all 7 of us riding together like a team. Rich did an awesome job retrieving quite a few bottles, and the rest of the boys put me in position at the bottom of the long grueling climb. Halfway up I dropped a chain, but luckily Robbie was there to help pace me back, and that may have hurt him about, but the trooper that he is he hung right in there to help Rich and myself at the finish. One funny thing at the finish is we are following Robbie around and before we know it we were siting 2nd, 3rd, and 4th wheel with 4km to go! I'm not sure what they were thinking, but I was like this is a good position, but I don't think we can hold them off, nor were we even going to try. Soon enough it was sworm city again and it was hard to get the position without some of the numbers the other teams had. Like I said before 2 more days.
Ok time for bed as tomorrow is a bright and early start at 8am, which is really nice considering we finished at around 6:30pm this evening.
