Iola Recap

During the preride I was feeling pretty good, I was strong on the climbs fast in the track and solid on the decents. Overall feeling pretty loose, but if anybody knows racing there is such a thing as too loose. I wasn't nervous before the start nor was I pumped up ready to go which would be why my start was less than ideal.

I got around pretty good for the first 2 laps riding pretty fast and maintaining a rhythm, but then after the climb out of the bowl on the third lap, the cramps started. I didn't know what condition I was in cause it only affected me when I sat up straight. Too sweet of a drink maybe? Well I managed to finish, but not as strong as I would have liked. Again, I was super strong on the climbs and the real technical stuff (for once), but the killer instinct just wasn't there I didn't attack at all and I found that was odd, but 12th in age and around mid pack overall is okay, but the gap to the leaders really needs to go down and it will, just gotta have the right mindset, but that's just one of few things and good thing it's a long season.

That's about all i've got for now, I am definitely looking forward to Maplelag.

Hang in there, the results will come. I'm looking forward to some training rides with you when you finally move to Wausau.
