A little bit disappointing with how the season ended today – but I am glad I was even able to finish the race after my power meter cable came loose and was getting caught in my gears. I had to shift around in the back as it was jumping around to try to physically push the cable out of the way with the chain or get it to rest on top of the chain. I ended up trying not to shift much in the last few laps and then sprinting in the middle of my rear cassette spining like mad for the finish. All things considered, I will take 13th to finish up the season and start my off-season with a nice easy week of commuting!
We have had a nice relaxing morning, and now we are sitting in a very cool coffee shop Spill the Beans with free wireless and a perfect view of Turn 1 on the race course. The juiniors are racing now and there is a solo breakaway rider and Nate Brown is in the final process of bridging up to him. So soon there will be two off the front! I am totally impressed with these juniors – at least five of them could (and probably will) race and finish our Pro/1/2/3 race in a couple hours.
