It's been a slow first week of riding. I've managed 83 miles in 4 days on the bike. The minor snow storms and family obligations have been throwing my schedule off. This week looks quieter, so maybe I can hit my goals. Here's a picture of today's ride. Single digit wind chill, sunny and the light snow from yesterday helped with traction on the 'dirt' roads. I wasn't the first one out here either. It looked like two others beat me to it.
Next weekend is CX Worlds for all still following. Will update link later in the week.
I've been taking advantage of the weather and managed 53 miles over the last 2 days, so it looks like training is starting early this year. Now for cross- Tomorrow is the Fidea Classics Tervuren 02/01. Called the dress rehearsal for the Belgium Championships. Race starts at 9 am EST onhttp://www.procyclinglive.com/livestream/.
If conditions are anything like today's race in Baal, it will be brutal. Nys and Stybar broke away earlier and fought until the very end. Nys nudged Stybar going into one of the last turns and attacked. It was sweet!
USA's Jonathon Page finished 14th (-3:00), while Matter and Lalonde (-2laps)
