Tour of California's trip to the Sierra
Monday, May 16, 2011 - Race Reports
So we actually started racing today. But we didn't do the whole stage. I didn't really pay much attention to the weather up on Donner Pass this morning, but I'm glad we skipped the long, cold, decent off of it.

The plan for today was a bit questionable. It's hard to tell what the peloton would want to after the last couple days. My job was to attack right from the gun. That's what I did. Unfortunately that was not the move to go.

For the finish I was having trouble breathing. Not sure why, but it definitely wasn't right. I started at the back and finished at the back. That wasn't optimal, but tomorrow is another day.

Here's a picture of the time gaps in today's race from my other site Raceshape.com. Even without race radios it was still a break + well timed catch. Interesting.

Rumor has it that the climb on Stage 7 will cause pain. I hope you have a good race, saving energy until then, and then can show us a good "race shape" curve for that day. Rooting for you and team as the days progress. My work will prevent other stages from being seen live but I do hope the paulmach.pro fans come out vocally.
