Day 4 – Crossroad Classic – High Rock Road Race
Kristine got a good video of the sprint finish with a small break staying just off the front -
High Rock Road Race – power/heartrate graph
The power graph above summarizes the race pretty well – constant attacks, chasing, hoping missed break comes back, etc… 80 guys on narrow roads makes it tough to move around, but I managed to get into a couple moves, miss a bunch of other moves, get chased down a few times, and pull the pack around once or twice. In other words, it was an all-round terrible race. I sat up for the finishing sprint when there was still 40+ riders in front of me at 200m to go and a break of 6 or 7 riders off the front of that. Hopefully, I didn’t lose too many places in the overall and maybe with a good result tomorrow I can pull off a top 10 for the omnium.
