Thankfully, last week I just completed the Zwift "Kona Mission" - ride 112 mles, run 26.2 - and you're entered to win a brand new Specialized SHIV, decked out in orange with the Zwift colors.  And it turns out I need it cause upon another visual inspection of my beloved Cervelo P3, there's a substantial crack dead-center of the top tube.  I must admit I cried for about :30 seconds when I first saw it. 

It's silly, I know, but I Love my bike. 

Not like I love my wife, kids and parents -- of course!!  Hopefully Cervelo offers me a nice credit toward a crash replacement.  Maybe I can swing a new Cervelo P5D.  We'll see... 

EDIT:  Crap, 2018 Zwift Kona challenge was a free Shiv.  This year the grand prize is just helmet and bike computer.  Weak.

Didn't plan on "racing" just wanted to use this as a Tempo workout, and lo and behold I found myself during the Final Lap in a group of 6 other C racers!! Somehow I managed to pace with the group up the final climb and descent. On the final straightaway, with .4 mile to go, they pulled away and I got gapped. Despite feeling smoked, I knew that the race was getting away and I put in a 400W surge to bridge the gap. I took a few breaths and looked up and saw .2 of a mile and realized, I may as well sprint. Somehow I bridged from rider to rider, jumping in and out of the drafts and made it up to the final rider in the group -- just missing out on first place in a photo finish. Experience and savvy racing got me a 2nd place that I'll gladly take! LOVE Zwift racing. Love it.

Today was my 2nd Zwift race post-crash, and I felt amazing during the race.  I'm still missing my Fifth Gear, but the first 4 gears almost back to normal.  Amazing what a difference 48 hours can make.
