Google Maps Streetview car… Screw NSA, Google scares me more!

Well… 13 lap race and #13 socks. Maybe I shoulda had a rabbit’s foot with me to balance things out.
Had good legs, was comfortable in front portion of the field, but flatted in turn two of lap two. Got neutral support wheel and chased solo for remainder of lap. But the field was WAY gone and there was no way I was going to catch them.
Such is life. On the face of things, it was a terrible three days of racing. But beneath the surface lies the truth; I’m still a bike racer and still love suiting up with butterflies in my stomach.
Time to train a little harder and smarter- track racing starts soon! #giddyup

Made it home safely from “historic Murrieta” with the Bag Full of Crap.
Though I was gapped behind a flat in turn 2, and was unable to bridge back to the main group, the real culprit was a lack of legs.
Tomorrow’s race suits me less than today, but “historically” my legs have always been better in day 3 of a stage race. We’ll see if that holds true, a decade since my last stage race.

Here’s hoping today goes better…

That really sucked! Crappy TT… sadly.
Didn’t focus enough on warmup, then a driver was either allowed on course or ignored course marshals and nearly ran me over in the first turn (she never even looked in my direction), so I came to a near stop, then I rode too cautiously in first half out of fear if dirt climb, then I just did a crappy job on the climb. I think the tri-spoke wheels were like too rigid vertically because I couldn’t control the bike on the rocky, silty, dirt road.
Tomorrow’s crit will hopefully be better.

Went for mellow shakedown ride and last minute tweaks before rolling out of the start house tomorrow at 12:25:30. Tour of Murietta begins with a bang… just hope I can make the time cut… even though there isn’t one, I’m still worried.
