First race of the season, St. Paddy's day in Asheville, NC. I was sitting at the tail end of the Pro 1/2/3 race and got dropped, chalked a day up to training. Collegiate racing starts this weekend for us!!

Attacked late in the Men's A Crit (collegiate), had just enough left in the tank to take the win.

Nice pic Zitter. That was an interesting course wasn't it? The men's A race was great.

Probably one of my favorite crit courses I've raced on on WileE. I didn't get to race it last year because I got hit by a car the day before so I was super stoked to do it this year since it looked so fun, especially in the A's

we took the last corner going into the sprint at 30 mph and for a moment I thought we were all going to slide out. even afterwards people were talking about how scared they were through the last corner haha. managed to take 3rd place in the sprint so I was pretty happy, although I wish i hadn't spent all that energy trying to break

Back in the UK and back to winter. can't really believe how cold it still is here...

Out come the overshoes, gloves, armwarmers, leggings and Gabba jersey (under team jersey... more pro than the pros :D ) for the Milland Hill road race.

A bit of snow in the air for 9 laps of a 11km loop with one very nice 25% hill. I've done this race a few times before and always blown up on the hill at end so the plan was to sit in and do nothing for as long as i could. This worked really well for the first lap but the second time up the hill i'd had enough in the peloton and went off up the climb. I think i did 4 laps solo before a group of 4 caught me. we stayed away till the end and i got the sprint to the line. Very happy with my first win in a second cat UK race.

Pretty awesome photo of me deep in the pain cave, pretty far off the back of the field this weekend. There's a fluo gaulzetti climbing away from underneath me somewhere in the bottom of this photo.

Season opener for me. Local hilly 10m TT.
Not really my forte (what is?? :roll: ), but good to kick in again, if a little cold and very windy!
