o2fitness -athlete, Travis Boucher on a roll, winning last weekend. Take a read below of his race recap...Now its on to his first national level race at Bonelli.
After that I had to catch up to the lead group of 6-10 riders but we weren't paying attention and missed our turn, ADDING about .2 miles to our race. We were all very confused when we came back to the middle of the pack. I basically sprinted all of the way across the levy to try and catch the rest of the field. I thought, 'It would be a shame for me to miss the podium for missing our turn.'
So thanks to Julie Young's awesome training, I sprinted (or tried to sprint) the whole first lap. I passed as many Novice High School looking kids kids as I could find. I got into my second lap and sustained a very good pace. I only passed one novice HS kid on my second lap and had no idea how I finished. I rode as hard as I could and got FIRST in HS Novice class out of 30 racers.
Thanks to Roseville Cyclery for sponsoring me, Specialized for the AWESOME bike and Team RC for the support. Also, thanks to O2Fitness for the bike fits and training.
