Back to Racing Day 4Ryan Pinney
Race Day is finally here and I am nervous and anxious. The road race is the first race to begin and I know the bike is good, I know that I have had good training the last year, and I know the course. It is time to get out there and ride. It is time to have fun and trust my training. We are all lined up and it is time to go.
As I cross the finish line I now have a better understanding of what my body can do. This was a good gauge on where I am. It was a good confidence builder and a step in a positive direction. I have won the road race, but now I only have a few hours to get ready for the Time Trial.
Warmup for the Time Trial is tough. Both mentally and physically. However, as soon as my start time comes, I can not worry about anything else but putting in the best effort that I can. I feel good and I feel fast. I can feel that the training I have put in is working. Regardless of the result, I am happy with where I am at this time of the year.
