Superweek Wrap Up

Oh superweek! I spent most of last week suffering at superweek. I raced 7 days in a row last week. Friday through Thursday. It was a blast with some decent results and some not so good results. Can't seem to get any great results but I will take what I can get.
Sunday was my home town crit here in Evanston. It was a blast getting to race 100 feet from my condo. The race went great for me. I felt amazing and was probably the best I have ever felt on my bike. However my 25th place does not reflect that. The race was stopped and restarted twice due to people crashing. Overall it was a very fun experience and I can't wait until next year. I also really appreciate everyone cheering for me on the sidelines. It really made a difference.

Superweek/Louisville NRC

Friday was the start to a long chunk of racing for me. The first stage of Superweek began that friday night with Beverly cycling classic. Race went pretty well for me. An break went early with about 9 guys, ofcourse I missed it like I always do. I however did manage to bridge up to the chase break and muster up a 17th place.

Saturday was the NRC race down in Louisville. It was freaking so hot down there. It could be one of the hottest races I have ever done. The car said it was 98 degrees. Field was not very stacked with a few pros trickled in including a couple Toyota United guys. I some how managed to not die of hit stroke and picked up another 17th. Enough for a couple NRC points and some fat cash.

Sunday was another race down in Louisville. Fun little course. Tried many times to get away with moves that I thought might stick but nothing lasted to long. I played the sprint wrong and sat to far back behind Texas Roadhouse and ended up 16th.

Well it seems like I am staying consistent in my results. Off to Chicago for the more superweek. Racing 3-4 more days then going to take a couple days off before Evanston.
