|During a twisty bit|
|Exploring the pain cave, looking for a way out.|
|Charging after Sanders (to no avail)|
The race ends when the lead rider does 2 laps more than the lap he's on at 45 minutes. During the ride i kept thinking i'd only have to do 8 laps, but as it turns out i did 9. I went for broke on the last lap and it took it's toll - my lungs burned deeply for what seemed like a long time after finishing. It was a perfect race to use for training, particularly the high intensity type of training that i favor - short enough to allow it to be part of a training week and motivating enough to ensure a hell of a session. Hats off to the folks at the UND cycling club for doing such a great job of setting up the event and creating such a friendly and accomodating vibe.
