Montreal-Quebec is nearly here. And I must say I am pumped. There is no more training to be done, just some resting. Going to have to leave it all on the road. Lachine this week is really not even worth talking about for me or the team. We lost Guillaume's yellow jersey and I DNF'd. I felt pretty much awful. I was not comfortable fighting for spots, my back was hurting and eventually kinda blew a bit. A little before half way I was sitting close to the front (but quite unable to make the final moves to be on the front for whatever reason) when my back kind of seized. It was pretty painful so I sat up. I'm not proud, and was very unhappy (I hate DNF's) but my head was no longer in it and I didn't want to risk so much on a Lachine, we still had a large team to help out Guillaume. Either way, that is behind me. The training has been going well, and its time to find out how my body reacts to a 200+km race. Never done a race so long, but am pumped to crush myself. Off to Montreal tomorrow I think as the start is real nice and early on Sunday. Good times.
Side note. I have for some reason had the urge to ride some cross so have nearly finished re-assembling my old war horse for a ride. Odd, considering last season I both built and glued tyres the night before the first race. Aka, my first cross ride.
