Circuits de Trois Province France 2.13
Stage 1- The first stage started fast as shit. We hit 4 climbs in the first 50k and we were attacking before, during and after each one. I covered way too many moves and when the decisive split happened I was caught behind it. I think it was over one of the climbs but all I know is I couldn’t go with it. It was just gone. So I finished 14 minutes down on the main group of 50. Wolf and Crane came in with the front group at 17th and 18th.
Stage 2- The second day was another 140k with rolling hills. I think there were 3 climbs with gpm’s(mountain points). I raced today more conservatively, paying the price already for the hard day before. When we hit the circuits I was struggling pretty good. There was hard climb on the finish line that kept blowing the field apart. On the last lap I got caught behind and just rode in with a small group. I finished a couple minutes down on the front group of maybe 25.
Stage 3- With the morning stage started at 9am, it was an early day. The race was 100k in the morning followed by an afternoon 14k time trial to end the stage race. Today I decided I was just going to sit back and just kind of watch the race. I got in a break when we entered the finishing circuits of 4 laps of 9k. We stayed away until 1 lap to go. I got up in the sprint but started a bit far back. I winded up 8th. Wolf also had a good ride for 12th. I felt pretty bad for the tt, so I just rode it so I didn't kill myself. Keith and Wolf had a good tt at 9th and 10th.
