Sunday, August 29, 2010 - Race ReportsThey say history is written by the winner. Since neither Jesse nor Phil have blogs, I will dictate what is written about the 4 lap, 100 mile, Winters Road Race 2010.
An 8 person break separated early from a well motivated, far from lazy, out for blood, peloton. The break, containing one from each team, except two from Cal Giant, gained a maximum of 10 minutes before it reached the finish line.
The break splintered over the last 40 miles and only 3 came to the line together. The finishing order was Jesse, Phil, Paul.
From a more personal perspective, I had fun riding the breakaway. I followed my prerace plan of riding the third lap hard with the intention of suffering a bit after that. The only problem was the third lap hard riding was mediocre and the 4th lap suffering was extreme.
I have one question to ask. To whom was the suggested $3 parking donation? A wealthy land owner, your mom? I have nothing against donating, but just straight up asking for money is for homeless people and your friends.
