Pre-race routine:

Registration did not open until about 6:50, and the course was difficult to find - not well marked.
Event warmup:

Did four laps to test the course......legs felt good. Road was in o.k. shape, some breaks/potholes.
  • 52m
  • 20 miles
  • 23.08 mile/hr

Needed to start closer to the front and get with the early break. The Indy team blocked us for breaking away. 20 seconds turned into a minute, and lost chance to catch them.
What would you do differently?:

I got caught up in the peleton and the tension, should have waited to the final lap....needed to be more patient. Had the legs, just didn't execute well. Good learning experience.
Post race
Warm down:

Easy ride, hydrated....should have stretched alittle more.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Team tactics.
