I raced Patterson Pass yesterday.
FUCK! Fast steep hills and the worst headwind I’ve raced in.
This race is one to train a week in advanced for. And especially in my field! It was a 96 mile race. A mikes bikes dude with a natural double chin took off at the get go.. Why? We caught him like a minute later. Dumb. ANYWAYS! The pace was quick. When we hit the first climb I was sitting maybe tenth wheel? Then the second climb came around and everyone kicked on their jets to full blast. Where was I? Holding on for dear life! I fell outta the main group and was riding solo for about 5 miles in the head wind.
A couple dudes that fell of before me caught up. We worked together on the descent and flats but never were able to catch up to the actual race. AND THIS WAS STILL THE FIRST LAP! Outta four…
I don’t know what the fuck was up with my bike! I was running a 26/11 and I was spinning out in the 53/11!! ?!? What?! Maybe the track has fluffed up my road game? No the track HAS! Am I mad about it? Naw. Because the track season is almost done and base training will be coming back around. I’ll be getting my Garmin repaired, travel a little. And I might have an official/unofficial lady that really loves racing/riding bikes….are this looking up for storts?!? Stay tuned for the next adventure recorded!
Thanks again for all the support
