I've had an amazing 3 weeks. Three weekends, three wins--2 road races, 1 criterium. People are saying things like "wow, you're off to a great start!", and "what an amazing season you've had and it's only April". Yes, all these things are true, but truth be told, it's normal. Or, it used to be normal. I am officially back to normal. I'm motivated to race, I'm motivated to train, and my fitness is back to where it was 2-3 years ago. I'm back. Plus, I should win these bike races. I'm paid to ride and race my bike. Anyone who is paid to ride their bike better be winning races.
I couldn't have had that kind of ride without my teammie, Anne. She made it possible for me to solo for 30 miles to win the race. She finished 3rd. It's always cool when you get to stand on the podium with your teammate.
Thanks Jody Grigg for all the Boulder Roubaix photos. He's takes amazing photos and is a super cool guy.
