Did my first race after a 2 year lay off and was fun. Now that all the nicities are dealt with, I'm man enough to admit that I got my ass handed to me on a platter.
Since it's late, the Cliff notes version.
-Not enough high cadence riding in training
-carrying 20lbs extra
-Need to drink more H2O
-Lousy start, well that was delibrate to keep in my first race
-Need to ride faster more often
More tomorrow when i have had some time to rest.
