This was a transition week for me to take some time off. Northlake ride Tuesday, Gym Wednesday, Peachtree run on Friday. Today I rode the 63 mile Kellytown ride which starts at STN MTN plus the to and from the house for 79 miles, just under 4 hours. Ouch. Legs torn up a little from the Peachtree run. Not exactly sure because the Garmin turned off but somewhere around 23.5 avg speed for the ride. Fast. Only accelerations for a KOM sprint and the final sprint, but mostly a steady pace. Around 35 riders. No stops. Perfect weather. Dana and Blau were there.
The Tour has started and I've enjoyed the first 2 days. Great finishes. My prediction is Valverde then Evens with either Damiano Cunego, Kim Kirchen or Ricardo Rico in third. It's going to be a good 3 weeks.
