I never want to race at altitude again.
Or get a cold.
I’ve been laid up (is that the expression?) all week!
My USGP weekend in Colorado was total crap. The altitude was killing me and it has been suggested that I was already fighting the killer cold that has kept me in bed most of this week.
I’m not writing to complain about my situation and poor results. So I won’t.
Some highlights of my trip included:
Spending time with Sacha’s mom.
Getting taken out to a sweet vegan dinner by Steve.
Having a solid evening of conversation with Brian Vernor at a bar while all the pro bike racers partied it up.
It is just about mid season point for me. I bought my flight to Belgium a couple days ago, I am skipping the final Cross Crusade race tomorrow to get over this cold and hopefully get some training in before the final USGP races next weekend.
