Fun Greenbelt tonight. DC traffic blows. Getting to Greenbelt from Alexandria ain't the easiest gig in the world. But the Nutella makes it all worthwhile.
There are four types of people at Greenbelt: the people who are there the whole race, the people who are there for none of the race, the people ride hard in the beginning and fade out, and the people who show up for the last two laps. The guy who won the B race tonight was one of the former group. Plus he has a really cool tattoo on his calf. Well done. I almost became one of the faders after a bunch of shenanigans early on and having done a big time trial workout last night, but collected myself. I don't really get the last group, but I need to keep the "training" in my training races.
I think I got sixth, with a solid sprint effort melding with really poor positioning to yield a decidely mediocre finish.
Lots of crap going on at work, but looking forward to kicking Drew W and Rob's asses up and down at Skyline on Sunday.
