Still feeling the high from the Stewart 45, I’m anxious to race again – even though my coach advised I take some time off. Sure enough, legs were feeling totally fried for this race,. I couldn’t get my bike up to speed and the bulk of the race I felt like a slug. As best I could, I tried to keep any momentum I could scrounge up rolling through this playground of a course. Lots of pumping, fast turns and one heck of a switchback in the Mexican Bow Tie brought a smile to my face. The day wasn’t a total loss – as I managed a 5th place finish. Ok, off season, here I come.
