So far, so good out here in Redlands. Sittin' pretty in the top 20. The whole team is riding well and looking strong and we're all super pumped to put our big fat armature stamp on one of the biggest pro stage races in the states. Today is supposed to be a 17 on the, "If I go any harder I will bleed out my ears" scale of one to 10. Can't wait. Only thing I can complain about is my spill in the crit yesterday. Hit a water bottle mid corner and washed out the front wheel and I was on the ground before I even knew I was crashing. Straight up bad luck. Nothing like crashing in 10th position because someone has crappy bottle cages then having 150+ guys go flying by. Got knocked back down twice trying to get up. Oh well.
