There isn’t too much to report on our team performance in the stage 3 crit at Merco. The 5 of us spent the race surfing the field, moving from front to back, back to front. Priority number one was staying safe, which we all accomplished. I nearly took a wheel to the face as I avoid the biggest crash (see 2:58 in video below).
Random observations from the weekend:
- If you enjoy sitting at red stoplights for absolutely no reason, move to Merced, CA. You’ll be in heaven.
- Chris HD really likes sandwiches. He averaged two per day from the pizza/sandwich shop across the street from our hotel.
- Cat.5s yield the belgian waffle maker to “Pros”. This really happened.
- Our team is awesome, mostly because of the easygoing and cohesive personalities that make it up.
Huge thanks to all of our sponsors! Without you, we wouldn’t get to travel and race with the best competition that this country has to offer.
