Turned things around after coming completely apart on Stage 2. Since then have 2 stage wins and 2 2nd place finishes. Both 2nd place finishes were super close- one I was right on JB's wheel, the other was the combined time Super D stage which ended up a tie time wise! He took the win since he had 3 1st places and 1 3rd and I had 1 1st, 2 3rds and a 2nd.
Killer riding out here and a super cool area. Interesting Amish and Mennonite settlements for sure. Wish I had a camera...
I lost such a huge chunk on Monday that its been a long road back to GC contention but I climbed at least one spot today. As much as I want to put it on cruise control tomorrow and just ride the last stage I think I need to pin it and see what kind of time I can get back. That's what I did today and it seemed to work. Who knows if my legs will agree though... been a long week!
