Greenbelt 5/9 race report
First race here this season. I didnt do to well.
I blew up on the last lap on the climb ended up coasting across the line again.
This is 4 races in a row that I hang in fine and then fade at the very end. Very frustrating.
I went on an easier 2 hour ride this morning that probably affected my race.
The positive to come out of this race is I was able to really work on taking in easy and conserving
energy. I was able to spend a lot of time not pedalling and that made the climb a lot easier.
The negative is that I again did a terrible job positioning. I started near the back and never really
moved up to far. I am just not fighting to move up and take a better position. I am getting tired
of typing that every week. I am not really sure how to even work on this.
There is just too many times I sit on a fading wheel instead of going around. A couple times on the
climb I got behind a slow wheel and just thought "ahh i can handle this pace" instead of bursting around.
here are the numbers
