Back to the dirt. Yesterday was the Wayne Ultra race down by Marietta, it was great course and well run race. I ended up on the podium in 3rd. Pretty happy considering how the last hour went. It was very hot and humid and I got very dehydrated, then cramped, basically had a come apart. After the race I drank a gallon of water and still didn't pee for 5hrs, fun! Anyway good times great course, great bikin! Photo's of the come apart soon.

The last stage of tour of Ohio went well for team and for me. Eric and I made the break of the race and Eric sat on and I helped drive the break then Eric attacked out of the break and got 2nd on the stage and moved up in to 7th overall. In the overall we got 3 in the top 15 and 2 in top 10 with 2 in the to ten almost every stage. A good week for a composite team. Overall I am feeling stronger after the week, than at the beginning. Hopefully good results are to follow.

Well we are well into the tour now. The prologue was a crit and we all got the same time, nothing real exciting happened. Stage one was Hocking hills, I tried to get in the early break to go for the KOM Jersey, didn't happen. I end up leading out Eric for the first KOM and he just got piped at the line for the points. Ole yeah I hit my max HR that I haven't see in a few years 201. That hurt. Later in the day I cramped up with about 10k to go, so I just cruised in. Ty was 4th on the stage and 4th overall, great ride by him. Stage 2 went well for me till the last 2 min, when Ty got his front wheel chopped and crashed in front of me. We were all well positioned for the up hill sprint and I felt good. Eric end up 9th and Sebastien was 10th. So back to crit racin tonight and another opportunity to do something.

Well, Its that time again, Tour of Ohio. This will be my 6th crack at it, wow I am getting old. I have went from getting dropped everyday to having a teammate get 2nd, hopefully I can get some action this year. The weather looks great and we are racing essentially in my home region all week. I will try to keep you up dated.
