I have only done two races so far this year, but this one was definitely the hardest. I couldn’t keep up very well during the beginning, but I found a BJC rider to pace with. We took turns pacing on the way out to the turn-around, but about 100 meters out from the turn-around he dropped me.
After the turn-around I caught a tail wind and regained some of the energy I had lost on the way out to the turn-around.
Once I got to The Wall the second time I had no energy. I think I got 8th but the race was still cool.
