I just got home from Louisville where I received the beating of my life. I guess it wasn't that bad, I just rode like an idiot. Hopefully I'll be a little smarter next time I pin on a number which may or may not be tomorrow. The break went today off the line and just kept getting fed by riders bridging across. I rode like a dork, and managed to work just hard enough that everytime I would look over my shoulder to see who was going to pull through, someone would attack, and I couldn't hold their wheel. I finished in the group, but the lead break lapped us with 15 or 20 minutes to go. There was one more group up the road I guess, however, I had no idea of the race situation until it was all over. It was a bit of a mess for a while. I attacked on the climb with 2.5 laps to go, and got swarmed with 200m to go. If I could have held it I guess I would have been top 20 or so, but I don't even know my placing right now.
On a brighter note, I was treated to a little shout out on Dave Towle's website. Check it out if you'd like. It's awesome that he gets to do so many big races this summer, but it's a little bittersweet since that means we don't get to see him around the front range so much. Oh well, hopefully he'll be back in town by cross season?
That's it for now, thanks for checking in. There might be some pictures from today's race on Peloton Photos.com, check it out.
