I sit here, Sunday night anxious and scared for my first Cat 3 experience. It is also going to be a rough 5 days with Cat 1's and 2's from the Midwest and beyond, for the Tour of Ohio. A 300 mile stage race in Ohio.
The stages are a couple 40 mile crits
70 mile rr
30 mile crit
and a 50 mile CR or so I think.
I am ready to get my butt handed to me, hopefully giving me some good form for Superweek. There is a 3's payout and overall leader's jersey. Maybe Jimmy and I could sneak into it for a day, or try to fight for it. Maybe get in some breaks to help out Dewey, Paul, John, Zach. And maybe I can be a good domestique and get someone the overall!
Ill keep the posts coming after each stage to tell you how dead I am :).
Good Luck in training, maybe some good weather for a change!
