Bikes on Broadway Stage Race, Saskatoon, May 18-20

May 19, 2013

Individual TT (time trial) Saturday night at 7:10pm, 8.2km.  Into a slight head wind.  Riding cat 3.  I redlined with 2.5km to go and felt I had left it all out on the course.  Really suffered and was inefficient with my riding for the final 2.5km, just struggling to get every ounce of speed I could muster.  I came in with a time of 12:29.  It was good enough for 7th.  The winner of the TT and leader of the GC was 54 seconds ahead of me.

The road race went earlier today at noon.  We were told it was going to be 80km.  the race started out very fast and there were many attacks.  It seemed most riders were targeting the 2nd placed rider in the gc who was only 1 second back.  He seemed to be the strongest rider out on the course.  He did manage to get away with 4 other riders at 15km into the race.  9 of us got organized and over the next 15km were able to reel them in.  I had a few attacks and so did some others, but nothing stuck after that.  At 88km (yes 8km over what I thought would be the end of the race), I decided to attack, thinking I could stick out some suffering for another few km.  I attacked and no one chased me down, so I stayed in my drops and began the suffering.  4km into my break the finish line was still nowhere in sight.  I was opening up the gap though, but that was small conciliation for the pain I was putting myself through.  Another 4km and the gap looked like it was continuing to grow.  The sag wagon had moved directly behind me, which is a good sign, usually indicating a 30 second lead.  Still no finish line in sight.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  2 more km into my break and I could see the green tent at the finish another 2km down the road.  Yes it ended up being a 102km road race.  I rolled across the line with an extremely dry, white mouth and completely exhausted.  I waited for the peleton.  They rolled across 1:02 after me.  In addition to the stage win, I also received a 15 second time bonus.  The winner of the tt finished second in the rr and received a 10 second bonus.  This puts me as the leader of the GC by 13 seconds.

I will be a hunted man tomorrow in the crit.  There will be 5 second prime bonuses on a few of the laps and the time bonuses at the finish as there were today.  I will have my work cut out for me and the peleton will have no mercy.  Sounds like another sufferfest.  I better get to sleep.
