I'm pretty down after getting pulled in a Cat 5 race today. I got gapped when the guy who's wheel I was sitting on sat up about 9 minutes into a crit. I struggled and squirmed, but couldn't catch back on. That's the second DNF in a row. After an earlier 4th place, I seem to be regressing.
Oh, on a positive note, I was promptly shut down by none other than the infamous Pizza Man last Tuesday when I foolishly tried to attack on the "Heartbreak Hill" of a local training race. It's like a 35% grade, and he soft-pedaled past me. Soon after, I detonated.
P.S. Pizza demolished the field by about a minute and a half. Just for clarification's sake, it was not a TT.
