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.

Bunny sprawl. New fun game to play ... turn your phone on to voice navigation and then guess which way it's going to tell you to go even though you are picking your own route. Respond by saying, "why would I go that way? this way is more fun!" 5 hours on a Monday calls for a good recovery drink ... chocolate milk in the fools gold finishers mug.
