Valley of the Sun

Hey whats up just got back from Arizona I was down there at a bike race called Valley of the Sun. Had a great race toke 5th in the time trial with a minute away from the leader. On the rode race I toke fourth it was fun some kid broke away on the first lap some kid on SCVelo he gained 5 minutes on the peloton. But the peloton didn't have to worry he was 42 in the time trial with 8 minutes to gain back. So no worries. It was hard because I had to cover every move because I was the only kid that didn't have a team mate. On the second lap we were able to drop the leader on the climb so everyone was able to gain time. The crit was awesome it was a fun course it had a slight climb in it. Again it was a hard race because again the attacks gept comin I thought I was going to get drooped. it was tuff. On the last lap a kid from major motion broke away and then a kid from SCVelo broke away after him. Then I went after him. And the SCVelo kid and I worked together and was able to catch the kid from major motion. I toke 3rd in the crit and so I got a time bounce of 10 seconds. and gained 10 seconds on the peloton. So with my time bounces and the gap time I was able to move up to 2nd and that's what I toke over all. My next race will be tour de soul in Saint George.
