“Ain’t no place like home” – June 4th

Hey team !

Here’s some race news from western France. So, today was (only) my 7th race of the year, and one of the biggest for me, 5 kilometers away from home. 20 laps of 4.5km (90km), with 2 climbs (1100m total eg) and a lot of wind.

Even if the legs did hurt quite a bit, I did manage to stay with the pack until the end, this time. And I even went forward and attacked in the last kilometer. I finished “only” 22nd, but still, we worked hard as a team, and we placed 5 of us in the top20… including a 2nd place !

The only fact that I was able to attack in the final kilometers is enough to give me some confidence back, as it is only the 2nd road race I complete this season, and the first one with the pack. Let’s see what the next ones will show ! 🙂
