We raced in St. Louis today. A 1 mile loop with one climb per lap. It was in the upper 80’s. It felt like 100 to me. I don’t think that anyone in the race was acclimated to the heat. The race went good for the Tradewind Energy/The Trek Stores Team. We had 3 guys in a 7 guy break. I wasn’t too happy that Brad Huff (Jelly Belly) was there. Brad knows us all pretty well and realized it was probably going to be a lost cause. Brian got away with 6 laps to go to win solo. I took off with 2 to go to make Brad chase. Nick the won the sprint for 2nd. I finished. 6th. Pretty good training for the next few weekends. I was pretty bad the first half hour and then better. It wasn’t nearly as painful as I anticipated. Maybe tomorrow. An 87 mile road race with a bunch of climbing. Forecast is for the mid 90’s. Might as well get used to it I guess.
