Waukesha Criterium Tour of America’s Dairyland

June 19, 2011 Masters 123

I signed up to do the full http://www.tourofamericasdairyland.com/ in the Masters 123.

I ended up 8 in this race. This was a pretty hard race because the course was slightly technical.  It took me awhile to move up to the front of the race, and it was pretty hard sitting in the middle.  Once I was upfront, it felt a lot easier and the power spikes were not as high.  With about 5-6 laps to go, a break of 4-5 guys got off.  I was right at the front and most likely I could have bridged.  I was thinking that I did not want to bury myself to bridge up because I was thinking they would be caught anyway.  I was wrong and I should have been racing more aggressively.   I was well positioned for the field sprint.  I was third wheel going into the last corner, but was passed by 2 guys down the finish stretch.

The video worked except for a 20 second gap where the camera turned off and back on, most likely were my camera slide down so the footage is covering a lot of the road.   Again, I used the data screen setup from http://www.biketelemetry.com.  I did not turn off the sound so you will need to turn down your volume.

Below is the powerfile with yellow power lines at 300 and 1000, and red HR lines at 150 and 170.
