Yesterday, I raced the Ballard Twilight Criterium. The pro/1 race started at 730 pm. We raced for 70min, at an average speed of 46km/hr. The race was going well, until some doad caught his front skewer into my rear wheel. At 50km/hr this resulted in nearly half the spokes exploding.
I am now one carbone short of a cosmos.
When my wheel exploded I was able to stay upright. I got to the wheel pit just before the cut off time, got a wheel change and jumped in for the last 8 laps. I couldn`t quite get in there for the finale, but today is another day of racing.
Training shall be based solely on feel,
while racing shall be guided by sensations and instinct.
