Truckee, where the wine flows fast enough for my wife
Friday, June 19, 2009 - Race Reports
The Truckee Crit marks the only day of the year that my wife gets drunk in Truckee. The Pour House provides the wine and the race provides the entertainment.

For me, the race felt pretty much like last year. I'd go hard for maybe a lap and then promptly explode. I think a lot of people were in the same boat because I had trouble getting them to pull through.

Anyway, I did a bunch of stupid stuff, pulled back a teammate and then just rode the front so Dave Towle would say my name. There were 2 groups of 2 off the front and my Bissell teammate Graham Howard won the bunch kick for 5th. I finished somewhere in the group.

The crowd was pretty big. I heard some "You guys are racing for 5th" and "You're not catching them," but I also heard some people yelling PaulMach.com, so that was pretty cool.

And now it's time for a little known Wohlberg fact. At the Pan Am games he rode the 100k team time trial so fast that his team would just rotate behind him.
