This year has been much better than the last. I’ve learned to race. A lot of people have helped me race better. Three Friday’s in a row at the LA velodrome. Two of which I gained upgrade points. The other was a good learning experience. Last season I learned to control my blood sugar more during track racing. I learned little by little how to race smarter. This year I have the fitness to actually race well and not just hold on for dear life.
The coast trip is really what got me into shape. Having the legs to maintain control in a race feels great. It feels good to be in the mix, in the heat of battle at the end of a race, to be able to make decisions about what may happen in the race.
