Another day, another chance to hammer on my S-Works Tarmac. I think 15 guys took off in the 1,2 race on Sunday in quaint Baldwin City. The first lap of the 70 mile race Brian Jenson pinned it into the wind, riding right next to the yellow line I was tempted to cross over and hop in the draft, but I followed the rules and got spit out the back to start a long day of chasing. Our chase group whittled from 8 to 5 to 4 to 3. We kept Brian and Shadd and company insight for a few laps but their was not a prayer of pulling it back. I punished myself into the wind and was fairly happy I made it to the line with energy enough to unclip. I believe I was 7th but I am not sure. It was a fun day of riding bikes.
