My Favorite Bike Race

Fitchburg is here again! I've raced Fitchburg every year since 1998, and I love it because it is THE New England stage race, a race where I feel surrounded by friends. This year as a non-NRC race, the women's field is small and without the pro representation of the past (but don't get me wrong, there are a lot of good riders here!). Next year I hope the race can be back to full glory, but for now, game on! The time trial this year was up up up. I measured the effort pretty well, and managed to win. I thought it was possible, wanted it a LOT. My team was crazy strong; we finished 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th. I'm ready to have fun and suffer bigtime to do the best I can.
