No stage podium, but I'm still tied for second in the GC with EC.
The knee felt good, but I am really glad there is a rest day Friday.
There was a mental bug that I couldn't shake.
During my knee testing, I managed to pull out of my pedal.
I increased the tension at home and even more at the race.
During my first race with a "serious" dude, he pulled out of his pedal at the start, and I pulled out like 20 feet after him.
It could be that I am twisting my foot unknowingly during these high torque situations.
In any event, I had just as much fun watching and cheering.
There was one slight-grudge (re)match. Amazing race. Closest race a human eye could possibly judge.
Saturday and Sunday are going to be important, and slightly more up my alley than the last 2 races.
Sure, a overall podium would be pretty bad ass, but I'm hungry for a stage now.
