Race today. First time not racing in a skinsuit in over 100 races.
Race was 35 miles long. I kind of lost everything at about mile 29. Just felt bad all of a sudden and couldn't stay with the chase group.
It was a really fast race. The pace never slowed down, just straight speed the whole time. I got real hungry and felt like my wheels were rubbing my brakes, just no power. I was sad.
23mph avg speed.
Let's put this in perspective here. I feel like hell after this race, I jumped in the car, and wanted to go home.
So guess how fast these guys go for 120 miles, where half of it is on dirt, for 5 hours? 23.6mph.
