The ugly weather was followed by a stressful start for the Men's A's, including Beck Frydenborg. "Despite a [slow] registration table, they decided to start on time, meaning about a quarter of the field almost missed the race. Course was rolling, not too hard. We had some rain, and just generally wet/dirty conditions. I, afraid of getting dropped, decided to sit in and not go with any breaks. I think 11 people (2 groups) got up the road, so we rode easy and talked for a lap, then sprinted. I didn't do great in the sprint because you're supposed to train for that."
Beck, soigneur Camille, Anna, and Joanna got out to the warmth and dry while soldiers Emily, Kira, and Liam braved the conditions for another few hours for some extremely chilly and wet time trialing. At least their efforts were not in vain as they all had great finishes. The evening finished with more delicious food Casa Frydenborg, and a viewing of 'Eurotrip' while Liam passed out flat on the hardwood floor and the ladies took turns with the foam roller and 'balls.'
HUGE thank you to Robin and Russ for hosting us!
And a good time was had by all.
