I also just returned from Cote Picard Nations cup in Northen France. After being introduced by the announcer of the tour de france i promptly strung together some of the worst luck i have ever had in a bike race. After surviving the first two hours ( the first of which was spent covering 48km) i dropped back to the team car to grab some food. I was making my way through the caravan and as i approached the back of the peloton, the road seemed to explode with bodies and bikes. I was stuck behind a huge crash and after mangled bodies were moved off the road i had lost about a minute to the lead group. Hanging on the the back of a chase group we got to about 15-20 seconds of the lead group where i promptly flatted and flew off the back. With many gaskets blown it was time to call it a day and hope for better luck this saturday where we will be attacking another nations cup in the Netherlands.
On other news, i put together a small video of team camp 2012 that you can view here and i have uploaded all my pictures to facebook for all your viewing pleasure. Hope to keep you posted as much as possible. Till next time!
