GCGP Summer Finale Report

While most of the team headed up to River Gorge for the BMW Omnium, I headed over to Atlanta, Georgia to try to retake the lead in the Georgia Cycling Gran Prix series. Alas, I fought hard, but it wasn’t to be. Still with another podium finish in yesterday’s road race, I am happy to have finished 2nd place overall for the 11 weekend race series. Today’s circuit race was canceled because of a nasty thunderstorm with lots of cloud-to-ground lightning. Even though I wasn’t quite able to win the series, I was very happy with how it was organized and how it gave me and our team a goal for something to fight for all season long! Here’s a picture that Kristine got of the podium yesterday.

Also, that huge wolf spider was on my socks today. As much as I wanted to keep him downstairs to eat other bugs, I was afraid o would step on him so I took him outside. He's probably already been eaten by a bird ... the circle of life is so cruel. Apparently I have developed a later in life allergy to bee stings. My hand and my quad are both swollen from the two bee stings I got yesterday. Men's 100 mile podium.
