Merco Cycling Classic. 4 days of racing in the heart of Central California. Day 1 is done and dusted. The team rode strong. Really strong. 3 of us are sitting top 10 in GC.
The course was a beautiful circuit in the Merced Irrigation District, and although that doesn’t sound impressive, the climbs and views were beautiful. We did a 12.5 mile loop 4.5 times before heading up the finishing climb. The canyon along the Merced River was framed by the lush ranch lands rolling underneath the Sierra Nevada Mountains capped with snow. I love Spring in Merced.
TT tomorrow. 12 miles.
Oh, and we have our new kits in. I love them. Pearl Izumi makes some amazing products. Get to try out the Speed Suit tomorrow!
