M45+ 1/2/3
Full field
1 lap 48 mi
This was a sprinter’s race so my only hope was to join a break but this did not happen. We had three crashes. The first was in a right turn and I don’t think anyone was too hurt. There was a small break but they made a wrong turn ending [...]

- thorough group paceline warm-up until 6:45pm, which is [...]

posted in: Race report | 1

Took 1st at the Timpani Elite Cat 5 race Sunday morning. Short race, only 35 min long and flat and not too fast, the average was about 23.7 per Polar cycle computer. I stayed in the front for most of the race keeping an eye on the San Jose Race Team that was well represented. [...]
