Last weekend was the second stop for us for the NCC serires in Anistion AL for the Sunny King Crit. It was another twilight crit in downtown which always makes for a fun and exciting race. It was a 1.5 hr crit and attack after attack. Ben got in a break with Phil from Kenda and drove it for many laps to give us a free ride in the pack. Then once brought back it was back to work to cover moves. In the end Tino Conor and I were in charge to keep the speeds high in the final laps to prevent any late race attacks so Carlos could go for the sprint. In the end Carlos finished 2nd. It was a late night after the race, it is always hard to fall a sleep with all the adrenaline going from the race.
Last couple laps with Team Exergy on the front!
The Hardest Part of the weekend was having a 8am Road Race start Sunday morning . We had about a 30 min drive to the race start so it was a 5 am wake up call to eat and pack the van. With only about 5 hrs of sleep we were all unsure how the bodies would react. It was a 70 mile hilly course and about 70 guys starting. We were only able to use the right side of the road which always makes it hard to move up so once you are in good position you must fight to stay there. About 20 miles in Tino got in a break that went to the finish. Tino finished 7th and the rest of the team rolled in with the main pack.
We are all now back in Georgia for Speedweek starting this Saturday in Athens. 9 days with 7 crits. Its like a stage race for the crit squads.
