18 July 2010: Aaarrrggghhh!

What a week of "racing". A mechanical ended my day early in NYC this morning. After realising I totally over cooked myself into Minneapolis last week, I spent the week freshening up and focussing on a good race in NYC. After starting to feel good by the Friday I was feeling ready to race, but it was not to be. I have great mechanics and am fastidious about my equipment, but sometimes things just go wrong and my day ended with a brake locked on and was unable to fix it without tools out on the course.....surprisingly you can't ride when your wheel does not turn. So I had a little extended stay in the Bronx before getting a support vehicle back to transition. I will be back to NYC Tri for sure - definitely one of the coolest races in the world. Where else can you experience the "sights" of Broadway at 4.30am in the morning while warming up.So next - training camp, get faster and race again!
