Bunny Hop 35+ 3/4
I think this is just after bridging to a ~15 bike split that I thought was the race... comes out it was not. So it goes, but at least John Clark was there to take a nice picture.

short sleeves, not in IAB. you are p***ing away seconds
Tried to bridge a 25" gap with 5 to go. When I was 10 meters away 2 breakmates looked back and picked up the effort. I was stuck in no man's land the rest of the way, but held on for 3rd. (photo credit to teammate Jeff)

Great suffering there. Cool, and congrats for hanging on to the gap.
Next time, get aero. Drops or flat in the hoods. Elbows in, keep them supple, chin and shoulders lower. Relaxed above the hips, power flowing through the core to the legs. Practice VO2Max intervals in this position (don't fall into the habit of doing all VO2 stuff as hill repeats). Same with AWC (1'-2' intervals) -- work this aero bridging position out when you're under stress.
I do it all the time when I'm reeling back a break. Practice.

A couple from today's uphill time trial, credit to the guy with the watermark on the photos. These pictures show exactly why I hate Capo, they don't make a smaller size jersey and I still have zipperdick.
Bro, do you even suffer?
This was the crest of the hill which marked the beginning of my 20-minute chase to latch on to the front-half selection.
Avenue of flags p12. Much pain, so brutal. Wow.
