I have no real sprint, I am a triathlete so not really build for that explosive burst needed to get away from the bunch. But I do have an engine so when Sarah (In green) got a little break I jumped on her wheel, I pulled through when she started to fade and we managed to get away. I did this in both races and managed to win after launching from her fast break.
Bike racing is mind games and strategy, and bravery, the phrase “nothing ventured, nothing gained.” kept popping into my head as I was fighting with myself to make a break.
Yes, I have asked USAC for an upgrade, hoping to get bumped up to Cat 3.
