Velocity Stage Race, May 11-12

May 19, 2013

Road race 119km.  went well.  Took a few pulls and attacks, finished in 6 packs split up.  I managed to stay in the first main pack, but sprinted to 6th out of the 8 in that pack.  There were two guys that got away with 10km to go that finished 1-2.

Time trail at 3:30pm.  I have never done a stage race with an ITT after the road race.  I also finished 8th in the TT.  Got my HR up to 179 on the final stretch.  Time of 13:39 for the 10km.  That put me in 7th for the GC.

Sunday in the crit, it took me 3 laps to get my HR up and warmed up.  I was at the back (I even spun for 60 min before hand).  After that, I attacked.  Nothing came of that on lap 4, then on lap 7 (immediately after the first prime, I attacked again and got away with another rider and we rode together for 20 minutes and built up a lead of 25 seconds.  I managed to get a cash prime, which was cool.  The other guy ran out of gas and I was doing 30-40 second pulls to his 10 seconds.  We got caught with 4 laps to go, then I shot out again right away and went with a group of 9 other riders.  We stayed away, but I had nothing left in the tank for the final sprint and finished 8th.

All in all, I am pretty happy.  Points in every race – just barely – (only top 8 get points).  A measly 6 points for the weekend, but they are my first 6 points in cat 3.  A great stepping stone to Bikes on Broadway in Saskatoon this weekend.

Race schedule this weekend in Saskatoon:

Saturday 6pm (likely closer to 645pm) 8.2km ITT.

Sunday 9am Road Race 102km

Monday 8am Crit 40 minutes plus 3 laps.
