And the Angel declared “thou art become race fodder,” and said “it is done!”
I feel cursed……I cannot seem to get myself onto the podium. I’m right there at “stand & deliver” time, yet I’m letting them slip away. Sat at Sundevil was dicey. There was a nasty crash which I barely avoided in the combined 50/60 peloton with about 1 1/2 laps to go. 8-10 riders (all 50+) ended up on the pavement. A couple of them were still laying there during the cooldown lap. TruComposites/RPM now has 3 riders in 60+ (Norm Kibble, Joe Puchi, Larry McCormick) who managed to control this race and assure their mutual presence for the final (downhill) sprint to the finish line, which suited these power guys perfectly, Robert Tompkins and I could only watch while they powered by to take 1-3, relegating us to 4/13 & 5/13, respectively (My sprint still sucks).
