Dynamic racing yesterday at the Joe Martin Stage Race. The course was hard and the group was detonating all over the place.

It seemed like the entire field wanted to take Francisco Mancebo down. Unfortunately, when you have 2, 3, 4 and 7 on GC, you're looking for the win, not to just take him down.
Breakaways That little conflict resulted in a lot of yelling. I was the high man on GC in a couple moves. However, Mancebo's teammate, Cesar Grajales, only 13 second back on me, was also there.

The group was getting angry, expecting me to work, while he sat on. Well guys, after 70 miles of riding, I'm pretty sure Grajales could take all the time he needed at the finish. That's not really the result Team BISSELL is looking for.

At the end, Jay Thomson was in the late break. We had to bring it back a bit to protect our GC. From what I heard, the whole caravan was in uproar about that. But again, Jay was the lowest man in the move, so...

Jay won and most of the GC stayed the same. So it still worked out pretty well for us.
