I had a shocker race.
Had started getting ill on Friday and it just got worse and worse.
But I was there, so I lined up! Fever and unable to breathe, crashed in a pole on the first half of the first lap, got ridden over by other riders. After that, I just rode on noting. Never had such dull legs. I had no kick, was standing up on the bike pushing as hard as I could and going absolutely nowhere. It was depressing. I settled down a little after 2-3 laps and ticked a couple of riders, but I was so relived to be pulled out one lap to go.
The season is still long though and I just want to get back to where I was before 3 peaks and Grinduro. Those long races demand something so different out of you.
