Yesterday was super fast and we put our secret weapon, Tom Peterson, on the front to pull back the break for Tyler. Tom loves to get up there and put the hurt on people. You don’t ever want to train with him as he will just sit next to you all day and go at a very uncomfortable pace, for you. There was a chance of some crosswinds also, so we had the whole team lined up at the front just in case the opportunity came up and we could throw it down. Tyler got second on the day.
We drove 150kms after the race to the town of Zarragoza. We stayed in one of the nicest hotels so far, it must of cost a fortune, super modern, and gigantic. Too bad we couldn’t stick around a bit longer to enjoy it, as we had to leave early in the morning. I was pretty groggy and wanted a coffee on the bus but the French bus driver said something to me and from what I gather the generator is blown and we need to plug into another bus at the start. Geez! Got the coffee in me before the start and instantly started singing out loud.
From the gun I did my patented Green Hornet attack. This is where I sit on the bumper of the neutral car and as they speed away for the start I accelerate away with them while sitting down. I got a gap and radioed back to the guys, “the Hornet lives!” The attacks soon caught up with me and we were all mixing it up for about 45 mins. 5 guys got off. Michelle went to work today doing most of the work. CV, Peterson and myself started drilling it with 25km to go. Got the group all back together for the sprint and Cav won. Another day in the office as they say.
I just read Davinci Code is abstaining from sex for worlds or something, that does it, he’s definitely out of the mustache club now!
