Amgen Tour of California Stage 1
4th in the opening stage in California
Well I gave it a red hot go today but in the end it wasn”t enough and I came off 4th best. I would be lying if I said I wasn”t very disappointed with myself as I know I have to ability to be on that top step, but as it goes with sprinting, one small mistake and that”s the difference between being on the podium and not. More so I”m disappointed because I hate to let down my team mates who done such a great job keeping me up the front towards the end.
On a positive note, my legs felt very good, especially on the hills which is going to play a big part in the coming days. On the main climb of the day with 40km remaining I managed to make it over in a very select front group which is very promising for the coming days. When I look at the stage profiles for the next 3 days I defiantly think there are more opportunities for me “IF” I can continue to climb like I was today.
That”s all from me today, time to go get a massage and relax before another grueling stage tomorrow.
