Keep in mind that the field was slowing for the turn
The pace was ordinarily well above 20 MPH
If you've been wondering why I'm been a little lackadaisical about blogging recently, let me assure that it has nothing to do with the terrible wildfires raging in California.
Instead, it has much more to do with the fact that I'm on vacation from work. Yes, that's right, vacation. Just as soon as I finish banging out this post, shower, and load the car, I'll be on my way to Cape Cod for a few days of relaxing with my parents. Then, later in the week, it's up to Vermont for the Green Mountain Stage Race, the first of my three fall goals.
It's going to be a great week, and to ensure that I return next week with the most-possible freshness, I'm going to be taking a break from the blog, beginning after this post. Hopefully, I'll be able to post updates from GMSR, beginning Friday, but if not, expect regular updates to resume on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
I started my time off from work at the Chris Thater Memorial Crit, which I covered for Velo News. Read the report here. Although it was a lot of fun to watch the race, it was a three-hour drive in each direction, which I could have done without. So it goes.
That's all. Have a great week!
