Video Nasty

Got on the race video this Sat ( 1st Aug) :

And don't forget to choose high quality 'HQ'!

It was the Madigan GP. At 4 video minutes the pace kicked up big time, the 11 sprocket not big enough and I was suffering big time as the pace stayed high for a long time, the bunch strung out a ling way, and almost losing the wheel in front. We're doing 30 and its uphill!!

Very hilly with a good smattering of 1st cats. You can see its hilly from the cliff edge high above the sea at 50 video seconds and 4 miles in, after racing started at sea-level.

I made it over the hills the first lap, only to be dropped the second time.
I got over the main climb the second time, only to be dropped on the lesser 2nd climb. How I hate getting dropped. :(

If you look carefully you may just see me in the bunch, I'm on the white bike, number 527. That's me getting towed up to the break at about 8:40.

Interestingly, the big chimney is from the power station that I was working at last week :!:
