Tour of Murietta

(teammate Chad Derosier after flying over the bars)

They should seriously think about re-naming this race crashfest, in the PRO field there was at least 15 crashes over the course of two days.  This was the most crashes that i have seen this whole year, I'm very glad that i was able to come out of his weekend without breaking anything. 
The crit was pretty fun, a wide open four corner crit, lots of wind and a corner that went from 3 lanes to 1. (this might have been the reason for some crashes) however i forgot to put fuel in the tank throughout the whole race this makes it very hard to get to the front of the field at the end of the race for the sprint so I got a mid pack finish, with the wind and crashes i was just glad to finish the race on two wheels.
The road race, I thought that this day would be much better because i would remember to eat, oh man maybe i just need to take some time off the bike.  the same thing occured i just couldn't move to the front of the field, after a 60mi RR this should be no problem, but i was stuck with another 30th or so finish.  After San Dimas this coming weekend i think that i will takea few weeks very easy and try to reset myself before sea otter classic, we shall se how that goes.
