cat: elite 3
So after two hard days of racing I was pretty tired, but high off the teams success I decided to race a third day.
The course was shaped like a fat L, with a dip in the road at about 300meters to go and a massive tail wind sprint. The weather was nice and the field was the same size it had been all week. I started off just riding around the top 15 guys until some how, a guy overlapped wheels and crashed himself out. I decided it was time to move up and about mid way through the race I began to feel the last two days.
With 3 to go I was sitting comfortably in the top 10 just buying my time. When we came around for the bell lap I was sitting second wheel, a little further to the front then I wanted but still great positioning. The guy on the front had two teammates behind me so I had my fingers crossed he was gonna drag me all the way to the line. But with two turns to go he sat up and a group of 7 guys came shooting by me on the left. I jumped in behind them and out of the final turn I couldn't come around anyone.
It was nice to see that after two solid days of racing, I could still ride hard at the front. It was a great weekend for us as a team and I can't wait for Madera.
