The rain held out until the very beginning of the race today. It didn't take much convincing to get Casey to call it a 45 min race, short of the 60 min schedule. The rain scared people off and we only had about 25 to 30 riders
It started to rain pretty seriously after a couple of laps and then I got a flat. Ex TeamOakland teammate was nice enough to give me a wheel. Casey didn't want to get out of his car, but I figured I was good to jump back in.
Long story short, a four man break came about: Chis Hipp, Stanford guy, Billy Innes, and me. Stanford didn't work, Hipp was tired. Innes always makes 'work' look tireless. They all seemed to be fine with conceding, Innes giving me a nice lead out and me sprinting alone for the 'win'. Still, always nice to cross the finish line first. Real test is next week for the first real crit of the season. Hope to get a team presence out there!
