Sunday February 1st.
Meeting in the cold winter fog, riders rendezvoused for a softer run. Flat lands and straight lines were the order of the day for this sub 30mile march.
Flat topography also flattened the measuring line on many people's EKG as the easier ride made for clearer minds. With all that extra intellect available, we visualized two different kinds of sprints. The little sudden crowd sprints, and the big long organized lead-out sprint.
A kilo long leadout revealed monstrous gaps on Hayden Meadow, and forebode doom for the opposition. If Cyclisme can recreate lead-outs like these in real races, then other teams will have to go very very fast to get around..
Ironically, many of the folks needing the tighter slower training in the formations, or looking for the recovery from the many Rockies Rabbit, didn't show up.
