OVCX 6 Eva Bandman Worlds Venue

The next stop on the ovcx tour was Eva Bandman. The park is where the World Championship takes place in Feb. I really enjoy this park and Louisville; it’s a fun fast course.

The race was fast from the whistle and I got a poor start because I missed my pedal and was in about 20th after the first lap. I knew right away that I wasn’t on a good day. My exercise induced asthma was bad and I couldn’t breathe. It was going to be a long day on the bike. Long story short I worked my way up to 15th by the end and was disappointed but it happens sometimes.  I need to warm up longer and I was not dressed warm enough for the temp and wind chill. I knew better and will correct it this weekend at the Cincinnati uci weekend.

On a positive note a Cycle-Smart athlete Ryan Knapp won and started at the back of the 60 plus field! Look for him to hit it in Cincinnati this weekend!
Stay safe in the Frankenstorm!
