July racing update
Fitchburg-Longsjo was an awesome experience at the beginning of the month. Tomorrow is the Alabama state time trial championships in Sprott, Alabama. Table-top flat and I am looking to get some good time trial training and establish a base level for a 40k time trial since this will be my first one. I am hoping to break one hour, but I am going to focus more on riding a steady effort all the way to the end.
Next weekend is the Alabama state road race and criterium championships up in north Alabama. I am looking for a good result there and a chance to visit friends of ours in the area. Then I am planning on heading to Sylacauga for the Bull’s Gap time trial, which was my very first road cycling event 15 years ago! That takes us through the end of July.
August is going to be super exciting with the Tour de Elk Grove 1/2 amateur stage race with $55,000 prize money as the beginning of the month, and then an awesome regional stage race in Chattanooga (River Gorge) at the end of the month.
