Of course the takeaway is we need to do a better job of setting up our rider who lapped the field. I was stuck trying to serve two mistresses. Grab points from my series rival (so we can eventually not worry about late flats, weather, crashes) and try and help the team grab the win. Unfortunately my rival (ok, in his head) chopped our teammate off my wheel going into the sprint. I chased down the late attack by two of his breakaway companions, but soft pedaled a few strokes before the sprint proper started. A bit more organization and we could have driven right through those guys and he'd have gotten the win. But my last minute was 550, with a 20 second sprint.
Here's a good story. Our teammate lapped the field. The very first thing he did was ride up to me
C: Four of us lapped the field. You need to get fifth place points. Who do I need to cover?
gsteinb: (smacks him in the back of the helmet)
gsteinb: focus. you've got a race to win.
So, TSS and IF and 1 minute power aside. We simply didn't get it done.
