Since I last blogged I have been to California back to North Carolina to Florida back to North Carolina and back to California which is where I am currently. Racing kicked off in Merced with the Merco Classic; it was a great start to the season for the team with Joelle and Leah taking 2nd and 3rd overall. Next up was the Delray twilight crit in Florida. We had such a fun weekend of racing; despite forging many breaks we didn't manage to break the race up so in the end it was a bunch sprint and Courteney powered to 3rd. We lived it up post race experiencing how the other half live. Our host housing was unreal; yacht docked in the back garden, outdoor plasma screen, jacuzzi etc etc. Florida is pretty cool you have to look hard to spot a fat or botoxless person. Our host's very kindly took us out for supper on their boat which was a lush way to end the weekend.
Tomorrow the San Dimas stage race kicks off. With lots of big names like Kristian Armstrong and Ina Teutenberg competing it will make for some exciting racing. Stage 1 starts with a lung busting uphill TT- bring on the burn!!
Ciao for now!
