2nd has been my place of choice this year I guess.I'm still sporting some nifty blisters from Joules Cross. The courses were similar to last year: bumpy and windy with a little climbing thrown in. Winds were out of the south Sat and north Sun, meaning the longish S/F section was into a headwind both days.
Both days featured smallish but fast fields in the 1/2/3 race. Saturday I ended up chasing Tilford and catching on about half way through. He sat up and let me pull the next few laps while Jenson chased. I wasn't sure what to do at that point and tried a few little moves and tried to save some energy for Steve's inevitable attack. On the last lap we got a little crossed up as he was bunny hopping the barriers and I was running them. This really didn't make a difference in the outcome of the race. Right after the barriers was the technical section of the course, which Steve was riding much better than I was. He got a quick gap here and I had nothing.
