Cary Cyclocross Race
After a very long weekend with little sleep, I got ready for the race on Sunday. Travis Lucas and myself, took our pit equipment over to the race and watched some of the other races. Then we went back to their appartment to hangout for a little bit, after which we got on our bikes to ride over to the race. I had been feeling stretched out physically and mentally from my busy weekend. Friday night I didn't get to bed until 3a.m. due to a 10 o'clock double expresso, then I had to get up at 5:30 to go to my team meeting in Cary. That night we didn't go to bed until 12 o'clock, and had the pleasure of being woke by the rowdy neighbors at 6 in the morning. When it came down to race time, I felt like I had been awake all weekend. I got into a good position behind Travis livermon in 7th place on the first lap. However I couldn't hold my concentration in the technical sections, and my energy was leaving me faster than water coming out of a broken above ground swimming pool. So on the third lap I just quit going up the run up, I didn't want to get sick racing with guys I could have beaten any other day.
