Camera stayed in the jersey pocket most of the ride with the high winds making bike handling a bit squirrelly. Managed to get a fly-by video after the sprint regroup.
I thought I positioned well and hung on the fast pack for a bit but was underpowered and assumed my position solidly off the back. There were plenty of stout, early season attacks to cover. I stayed in it and passed a few others, collected up Jason and worked together to remain in semi-close contact. I could notice a difference in effort to push these Rolfs on gp4000s versus the old setup on leadcases.
Fast pack at the end of the ride, pretty sure the guy on the red Cannondale and white U. Illinois jersey is the local Olympic speed skater. Watching his sprint effort was pretty nuts, was like a freight train. Lots of woosh-woosh rubber ripping at road during acceleration noises today.
It's Flanders week !
