Well Cats Hill was one tough crit. It wasn’t my day out on the course, but I put up a fight and at least Doug Pearl got nice photo of me in the pain cave.
Ryan continued to put his good form to use and rode strong the entire race to finish mid pack with the deteriorated field sprint.
Overall I learned this is one of those courses where experience can give you a big advantage and never take hydration lightly. I now have a better feel for this race and I look forward to coming back next year ready for battle.
