Local Race- Market Street RR
March 19, 2006
“A quarter past 3” was the reply Dave got from his wife when he asked what the gap was between the break and us. I guess she doesn’t come to many races, but it definitely lightened the mood. She probably thought we were getting hungry and perhaps it was near supper time…
The course for Ravensdale is much more difficult than that of Mason Lake. The route was very hilly making it quite difficult to maintain a constant speed yet ideal for attacking. So most of the race was marked by that of attacking with an occasional chase being organized and subsequently shattered as the chasers tired from the undulating terrain. But it made for a likable race nonetheless; I got in some good training with some solid efforts during the race and a couple hours prior to the race.
