Mominoki Circuit, FTW

9 laps, just over an hour and a half of racing.

Ride report here with powerfile attached, though with so much descending time it's a rather unremarkable file:

http://www.cycleiwakuni.com/blog/index.php?id=158

Lessons learned:

1. (re-learned) Turn the powertap on before the start
2. Course recon is vital
3. Solo can descend much, much faster than group

4. All you stateside people can complain all you want about energy drinks and sample packs for race win prizes. Come win here and you get a bag of rice!




5. SUPER glad I didn't bail from this race. It was much safer than I expected - almost safer when in the group cept for the folks in the back that crashed on lap 3...

Congrats.

Considering how your training was going, was there really any doubt?
