Stage 2 Owned Me

Suck.

The field absolutely shattered on the first climb like two miles into the race.  There’s no physiological reason I can’t go uphill.  I would even go so far as to say I was reasonably good at going uphill in my younger days.  Granted I trained 2-3X as much then… Anyway, I ended up chasing the gruppetto, catching the gruppetto, getting dropped from the gruppetto about three times.  At the base of Big Mountain (well thought out name that one), I quit.  I don’t think I would have made time cut, but I am really dissapointed in myself all the same. 

I am not going to go watch the crit tomorrow.  I think that might kill me.

EDIT:

Gotta get the heart back.

  1. I disagree wholeheartedly. If the form is there, it hardly matters what you are on. We had plenty of time to get used to the bikes. And they are sweet bikes.
