Brief race results update from Turtle Pond today!
Christina killed it with her first win of the season. She put the hurt on the 3 field in the final 1km; no one was able to match her acceleration and she gapped the bunch with room to spare before the finish. She reported that the field stayed more or less together through the whole race and she marked several attacks before initiating a few of her own. Yeah, T!
I finished fifth in a bunch sprint after a group of 8 or 9 of us separated on the final lap. Wellons took the win. It was a frustrating day for me because I felt strong throughout the race. I made a big tactical error at 1km and blew my chance for a podium spot. On to Quabbin tomorrow. No more waiting and watching; tomorrow I attack.
