Hey team ! It’s road race report time !
For those who don’t know me yet, I’m Quentin, 25 yo from western France. I race 3rd category on the road and have been for the past 10 years or so. I race for a local team called “VC Châteaulin”, in the land where Cycling is king : Brittany.
First off, little situation : it was my 5th road race of the season, last one being 1st of May, and the one before back in March. I came back from 2 days of work the day before at 11pm, so… not the best prep’.
Race data : 90km, 1400m eg, 25 laps of 3-4km with a 1ish-km climb each lap.
I actually “raced” for the first time in a very long time, going into breaks and putting down some watts (5 times 950+), so I was pretty happy with that. Hung on to the pack for 21 of 25 laps, and had no more fuel after 2 hours… In my defense, it was the first time I raced for 2 hours since “the injury” (right knee tendinitis), back in september.
So yeah, quite happy with that, and let’s hope better things are to come.
