We are going to reach back into the vault for the blog post. The year was 2021.
I only competed in one race this year and wasn't going to do it unless my buddy talked me into it. In October, I was going to try and ride over 300 miles, therefore, my training had to reflect ultra-endurance training and not crit racing. I competed in the 2021 Winston-Salem Cycling Classic crit race and the 4/5 men's category. That morning meant that I had to wake up, eat and get in the car by 5 AM so we had enough time to get to Winston-Salem and get signed in. We got there with fifteen minutes to spare, which was not enough time to warm up. I got one practice lap and then we started. I don't want to give it away, but watch the video and see what took place.
I crashed out at the start of the third lap and had a front tire puncture, so I could not continue. It hurt to pay $40 to drive over three hours round trip for 1.6 miles. I'm going tubeless on the roadie too!
