the peloton stretches out while descending at about 80 kilometers per hour
20th today, 20th on G.C.
the upward trajectory suddenly turned down sharply when i missed my start like a cat. 4 rookie and spent the day chasing. at least i caught some guys and didn't finish dead last. talk about embarrassing.
afterwards, i called my old soigneur, Murphy III. sometimes a racer needs a babysitter to make sure that they stay on top of all the little details so the racing can be calm, relaxed and focused. things are sure going to be different next time around.
