With Merlinextralight even.
I did OK in the circuit race, worked a lot, attacked a few times, shut down a few break-away attempts, and of course did my normal getting effed up in the final sprint, but still placed top 20.
I didn't do well in the perry-roubaix road race. I got pinched out on a hill 2 miles into the race when a guy dropped his chain then stopped his bike and stood up. One of my teammates was attacking on the hill, and by the time I got around the charlie-foxtrot I was dropped. I rode the other 46 miles pretty much solo, picking up people here or there, but never a contingent of guys strong enough willing to work hard enough to get back on. But I was not DFL.
My teammate probably won the KOM points.
