I made the pilgrimage back to my old stomping grounds this weekend in preparation for the sufferfest that is Barry Roubaix. In only it’s second year this race boasted a 700 plus field, which made for some deep talent. This race is officially a big deal in the style of an old Belgian Spring Classic.
Race Cliff Notes: This one hurt more than any race ever has in March. I suffered. I had to dig deep several times. I made “the selection” but was all out of moves with 3 miles to go. Wound up 15th overall in a field of very talented riders. Ended the day realizing I have some work to do ahead of me. Nonetheless, the cobwebs have been blown off and the season has been opened.
Congrats to fellow 29er Crew Team Mate Mike Anderson who kept the crew represented for a second year in a row on the podium.
Looking forward to this upcoming weekend!
