Last night we raced the Fat Tire Crit here in Prescott AZ, to determine the call ups for Sunday's 50 mile main event. Here is a little run down of how it went.
Lap 1- Sat on Erin's wheel up the hill, and got in front-ish for the first descent, not a bad start.
Lap 2-Went all out because it was a prime lap (if you cross the finish line first you get $50), and got out-cornered by Rose Grant.
Lap 3- Found myself off the front with Georgia, Chloe and Rose, going really really hard! Absolutely buried myself to keep up on the climb!
Lap 4-Came off the lead group and found myself alone, between two groups of riders, suffering.
Lap 5- Let the next group catch me, and then rode with Katerina, Maghelie, and Evelyn for a while, trying to recover.
Lap starting to loose count- The announcer announced another prime lap for our chase group, and the Luna Chix attacked, got dropped, and started to feel sorry for myself (haha).
Lap really not sure now- Kept turning pedals, saw the sign for three laps to go, was very grateful for that!
Lap still not sure but close to the end- Some lady crossed the street in front of me IN the sketchiest corner, I screamed for 20 seconds. Then I saw Carl Decker on the backside of the course, and the magic of his mustache gave me supernatural powers!
Lap one to go- Caught Rose and securely attached myself to her wheel.
Lap none to go- Attacked the crap out of Rose on the last climb and crossed the finish line in 5th!
|Ruining the podium since 2014!|
Now we drink mochas and take naps all day to prepare for tomorrows second round of brutal thrashing! I can't wait!!!
