This is one of my favorite race series of all time. I raced it in 2008 and 2009, sat out in 2010, and am back to race again this year, this time with a full squad of teammates. That means excitement, drama, action, challenge, and good competition. Tonight did not disappoint. There was all of the above, but there was no win for Team Belladium. Sad day.
It was definitely not my best race, and I finished 6th of the 13 riders. I learned a lot about how to ride with a team during those 31:02 minutes. Next week I anticipate being much better.
Stats from today's race: 31:02, 11.43 miles, 22.1 mph (27.9 max), 177 HR (207 max)
