Nice pics jekyll man. Love the fact that you've obviously got a pair of lucky TT socks...
Another criterium this weekend... Good turnout but the sun probably helped:
On a 3km closed circuit, somehow a group of horses got caught up in the peloton. How no one came off (bike or horse) i don't know. One neutralised race later, we started again.
I let a few breaks go but nothing really worked until a couple of strong guys went off the front. i marked them and found myself off the front with 75km to go. again.
As the race went on, the little hill on each lap took its toll until only three were left 10km from the end
Knowing that i just don't sprint, i put in a few attacks and finally got away two-and-a-half laps from the end...
...for another solo win
Did something very similar on the same course last year but that was in third category. now i'm racing first cat. It's nice to see a winter of training paying off.
