Wells Ave No 1

I don't want my scores of blogosphere fans to bite their nails all night so I will dispense with today's result- your hero was 5th in a knife fight of a field sprint, in which finishers 3 and 4 nearly wobbled into eachother from fatigue and closed the door on my acceleration. I was in the sweet spot of the train but as luck would have it, my line was was not clear all the way to the line. Fine and dandy. That's racing. Interestingly, avg speed was about 2 mph higher than last year's Wells Ave opener of March 23. Power? I won't bore you with numbers but I am ahead of schedule in all CP durations, especially the magical Normalized Power value for 60 minutes. It's good. Bad news that we had guys on our team become involved in two crashes. They are going to be okay but $5000 bikes don't heal without throwing big wads of cash at them!

Nice pull yesterday, you looked fit. That was me yelling your name on your wheel on your GIANT pull. Hope your guy(s) that crashed are ok. Your team looked strong.

BTW - my wife is digging the kids rig for my 4 yr old

Thanks Matt. My mind totally went blank and I didn't realize that was you on my wheel.
The guys are ok. Most of the injury was to carbon fiber.
If you like the LikeaBike I can loan you a demo to try before you buy.

Next race we cross, we'll have my 4yr old give it a go.

Glad your guys are ok.

We had 6 of the Pedros guys go in the top 15, good day, plus our work was for Spinelli Sun - so good day.

You looked fit.

Thanks again for noticing the fruits of an aggressive winter program.. I saw all the Pedro's kits and for some reason the coin didn't drop until your first comment, when I did the "A-ha!!"
Sounds like your new team is populated with some strong people and you are enjoying their company. What more can you ask for? I'm sincerely happy for you.
What is Spinelli Sun? Does your new team have a website or blog I can link to?
