Tour of Elk Grove – Stage 1

This was a pro-only stage, so I didn’t race today. Still, I drove part of the way to Elk Grove and then biked the rest of the way so that I could watch a few of the pros and warm up the legs. I was very surprised by the roads (much better condition and much less traffic than I was expecting). This really is a beautiful part of Chicago. I was really surprised, beautiful roads and land out here just west of the Chicago O’Hare airport. Here’s a map of the route I took:

The pros were racing a 4.5 mile prologue time trial that overlapped with part of the circuit race course that I’ll be racing tomorrow. Fast and flat, the results showed a lot of people including Matt Winstead, within 20 seconds of the lead. Check out the results.
