Solo Effort in the High Winds

This was the windiest day of racing for me since a couple weeks ago at the Donaldson. I was lucky and did not get pulled and finished the race and learned a lot about my abilities in a strong headwind and a nice tailwind. This ended up being one of my most enjoyable times ever racing a bicycle.

Not on a break-away....

...and not sprinting for a great finish.

Racing at River Falls

The first sunny day race, with a climb, allowed me 4 laps and the full exploitation of my Cytomax cotton mouth abilities to not finish this race, but a decision to stop and save my legs for the next days race at the BMW test track.
