As much as I don’t want to admit it my wrist still needs sometime to heel. I’m glad I came to North Star. It feels great to be back with my team. My job is to race bikes and when you can’t be around bike racing everything just seems a little off. But yesterday I had to make a difficult decision to pull out of the race. My wrist does not have the strength and flexibility to race the way that I am capable. I’m so appreciative that my team gave me the opportunity to try to come back as quickly as possible. I’m disappointed that I’m not able to help them or be successful in this race but I have to look at future races. One positive is that I can ride outside now.
Stage one of North Star is complete. Stage two is tonight. Nothing like a quick turnaround.
I finished 11th on the stage. The funny thing is Travis McCabe finished 11th also. We have a tradition of winning on the same day so maybe this a sign of success coming my way!!
Oh and the arm. It’s doing alright, taking it stage by stage.
Check out the results.
