A small book of matches
Friday, August 26, 2011 - Race Reports
The mood was light around the dinner table tonight. There is nothing like suffering together to bring a team together. Everyone had a story about almost blacking out, throwing up or some other form of intense suffering.

So, I honestly thought that after the short day yesterday I'd feel good for the "easy stage." However, that was not the case. I attacked a few times and then the road went up and I was in the box, deep.

Fortunately or unfortunately I was not the only one suffering. As I was trying to sit in, I watched rider after rider attack, explode, and shoot back through the pack. I even saw the look of death on Laurens Ten Dam's face in person.

The second half of the race was a false flat downhill so things calmed down. Rob and I passed the time celebrity watching and cutting in front of the camera to get on TV. What? Sara told me to have fun today.

I thought I'd seen the worst of LTD and his over-played head plant. This picture takes the cake.
