The Morning of The Queen Stage (5)

Yesterday, the field split up early and we had Javier and Rubens representing. It was a hot day and attrition took it's toll. With 5 laps to go of a 12km circuit (starting at 12 laps), the attacks from the peleton started. Unfortunately, going into 2 to go I found myself in poor positioning to make the selection, which was very frustrating. However, the race up front by the team was ridden nearly perfectly as we rounded 2nd and 3rd on the podium. Team Type 1 has photos of the race on facebook.

This morning is the hardest stage. 160km but a kills profile. We need Rubens in the break early to take KOM points and to secure his lead. I will do my best to be there with him. We are riding low profile wheels-the lightest setup for today's stage. Now, in the team bus, we're transferring to the race. Here are some shots. The one of me was from the hotel room after breakfast - a few relaxing moments: the calm before the storm.
