The race was 130km, mostly flat, but with a few climbs. There was a lot of attacking throughout the race, including myself when I decided to run an aggressive race, but I attacked way too much, and my legs exploded during the climb.
I managed to get back in the group after the climb, but the suffering wasn’t over, as my legs were tortured on the next climb, and eventually I was off the back of the peloton. I continued to keep working with a small group, battling against the strong wind.
It’s safe to say that I was glad to finish the race today, and I performed well, considering I burnt a lot of matches in fruitless attacks.
It is now September and I still have races coming up this month. Bring it on!
