For 23 months I have been haunted by finishing 2nd to Brian Lewis at the Hagerstown Twilight Cirt back in June of 2019. I got smoked by Brian’s impressive last lap attack and it stung. Badly. Little did I know at the time that I would have to wait 23 months to compete in another, non virtual, bike race.
I think the sting of getting crushed in that crit has kept me hungry throughout the pandemic and helped motivate me to reach for new levels of fitness. Today, I was able to test out how far I have come and I was pleased with finding myself on the top step at the end of the day.
