Right after the neutral rollout Curtis attacked. We didn't come here to get pushed around and it immediately took the pressure off of Chris and I in our first race back. Curtis actually opened up a good sized gap solo off the front, a couple more guys joined him but then the field decided that wasn't going to stick. Shortly after bringing him back Chris followed the next move, it lasted about 15 seconds. As that move was caught the field eased way back and Tim Mullins (Carytown Bikes) had momentum and hit the front with speed, I jumped out of the group, got yelled at for a yellow line violation (there was no yellow line, and I thought I was fiine) but caught his wheel. Off we went, quickly joined by Jordon Cook (Bon Securs). Looking around and realizing these were the only 3 major teams in the race I laughed at how easy that might have been. Sure enough off we went, within a lap we were out 1:30.
The only thing better than getting the win for these guys was the Alamo BBQ Texas Trainwreck I had for dinner. Next up is our team's spring camp and then up to the first major team race of the year at Philly Phlyer, then Jeff Cup right in my backyard. So here it goes, I guess it's time to race. Couldn't be more excited.
Keep those pedals spinning,
