Back to the race...as soon as I jumped on my bike that morning, I noticed my legs were flat. Two days of hard racing at Sea Otter had worked my legs. Without any teammates in this race, I knew I would have to ride conservatively and smart. No heroic attacks today! My plan was to ride in the front quarter of the field and be ready to follow any threatening attacks. Otherwise, I would hide in the pack and sprint for the finish.
LA Circuit consists of four laps of a 4 mile, two turn paperclip-shaped circuit. There is a small rise and headwind in your face going out. Coming back it’s a tailwind with a slight uphill finish.
|I'm hiding in the pack. Can you spot me??|
I won $80, a Bahati winner’s jersey, and got to chill the rest of the day after three straight days of racing.
Next stop, Devil’s Punch Bowl. Thanks for reading, Diego Binatena
