Tour de Murrieta Circuit Race

Last Sunday I raced in the Tour de Murrieta and had a wake up call.  This was my first circuit race, and with the laps at 3 miles I thought that Audrey would be able to keep up.  Unfortunately, due to me getting tired I started to get lazy on my shifting, which of course slowed me down.  That was not the wake up call though, due to the Cat V's inability to go smoothly through the turns there was A LOT of surges.  After three laps my legs were fried and I was dropped.  All my training focussed on endurance and hill climbing had not prepared me for this.

End result, I finished the race and I was not last.
