This was my first Pro nationals and I was very excited but also very nervous. Our main goal was to get Freddie a 4th national title. The course was the same as the last 7 years with a good 9 min climb in it. I knew this was going to be my Achilles heel. My job was to just hang in as long as I could and help Freddie with anything he needed, fetch water, bring to the front, ride the front. Long story short I only lasted half the race and was pretty bummed but also it was a new style of racing from the past 1.5 months 1.5 hr-120 miles. In the end a break went on the last climb and Timmy Duggan on Liqigas soloed for the win and Freddie top 20.

Now I am enjoying some R&R after racing full on and being on the road for close to two months. I will be in Boulder for close to a month before the second half of the season. I am very happy with the season so far and really look forward to what the race of the year has to bring.
