The longest and hardest I've done, by far
Friday, May 21, 2010 - Race Reports
Girls used to tell me that all the time, you know, before I got married. But today, I'm referring to stage 6 of the Tour of California.

Everyone, and I mean everyone, knew today's stage into Big Bear was going to hurt. And everyone was right.

I'll be honest, the last 5 days of racing haven't exactly left my legs feeling fresh and it took 1 pedal stroke this morning to confirm that.

It wasn't just the climbing that hurt today. It seemed there was always a cross wind sticking you into the gutter. So when Fabian finally called a gruppetto, I was all in. We finished about 31 minutes behind the leaders.

As for stats, today took 7 hours (including the neutral start) and had 14000 feet of climbing. That puts the 6 day total at over 31 hours.

And that is all for tonight, so tired....

Just a little longer Paul. Keep it up. Show em all you can compete with the Euros. Chase down a nice fat contract from those teams.
