Day #1 of Gateway Cup Tour of Lafayette- I was Expecting A perfect little Square around a Park All Flat. Yeah No :) 4 Corner Crit with a Long False Flat, you would go Zoomiez Turn 1,3 and 4, going out of turn 1 into the Long False Flat was bad for me i lost pace real fast after the Second Lap, Going up the False flat i had to use a lot of my Power to just Not get stuck on it, going onto Turn #2 I was trying to bring myself Back up to a Good Pace the whole Back Stretch of turn 2 and 3 was a Very low hill not too hard, turn 3 i would get my momentum going getting the pace good and steady Controlling Breathing and Heart Rate to Zoom up the False Flat snagging a spot on the Podium on Day 1.
Day #2 Tour of Francis Park, this was a Rectangle 4 Corners As Well, with a Long and Very Fun down hill, 1 Hill and False Flat, on the Start /Finish Line, you had to climb up to Turn 1 a Small Hill, Making your way to turn 2 where you pick up the Speed Real Fast Going Down Hill, Keep in Mind when i was Racing it was Pouring rain i had to be careful of the Paint to not Slip! getting to turn 3 you would have to go up a short uphill, getting to turn 4 Coming up fast to the climb after awhile i was getting a little cold from the rain and wind but the more power you put the warmer you get on the bike. also Secured another Win!
Day #3 Giro Della Montagna 'THE HILL' Personally this was my best and favorite race of my Road Season. the Hill was your regular 4 corner rectangle, it was not raining during my race very sunny and hot but during 3/4s it was pouring sucks for the guys but Start/Finish Line going up to 1st turn and second i had to pick up my speed coming out of turn 1 right away setting the pace for the hill. out of turn 2 there was a little down hill, coming right up to the actual turn, going up i had a really good pace and momentum going up i would only get stuck for a couple seconds on turn 3 but setting my momentum back up for 4th turn which is a really long down hill, i loved this race it was so much fun because it was different, never raced going uphill and downhill going real fast! It's really fun I recommend it Also took another Podium.
Day #4 Benton Park Classic a Large and technical Course 10 corner Course! with a Semi- Long uphill during my race it was a little rainy, just a little rain caused a big crashed in my field, this race was also my best with a great strong Sprint at the end for me, i loved being able to race and also see the famous Big Bitch! that was probably the coolest part, this was only really technical speed, took another win! From my Experience in gateway I learned a lot of new Things from on and of the bike new things that i will adapt to the upcoming season!
