Annual Ying-Yang

Last July I wrote about the ying-yang of cycling, which could also include the ying-yang of life. You have your ups and you have your downs. Good things happen and bad things happen. That's the way the world works.

After racing for 4 days in the rain, in the Czech Republic without any of my clothes or any good results to write home about, we drove west to France. My clothes arrived and the sun came out.

Day one of our "Brittany" stage race was going as planned. We had a three person lead out going for our sprinter Lauren, when at 1km to go 2/3 of us crashed. Ouch. A lot of road rash, a broken bike, and low moral brought us into stage two. Finally, the ying-yang made it's turn. Lauren was second in the stage, I was third and we are now 2 and 3 in the GC. Yippy!
We have 2 days left and 3 stages. Hopefully we will be left with results to write home about.
