Another Hawk Hill Return

Baleen took the night shift yesterday so I could be in spandex at 5.55am and the start of Hawk Hill at 6.45am. I was a little less exuberant at the Start, my second time back since the arrival of The Dragon Boss, and hung on Asprilla's wheel when I found it, knowing that if I could follow him for every inch of the climb, I'd be just fine.

It took a little work to stay on his wheel in the False Flats where I was fourth of five, and then the third of four when Packy Bonner stepped aside and waved us forward. That gave me a little boost, pedalling hard when Packy wasn't, as he had just nipped me at the line my first time back, but the boost only lasted a moment as I fell off the pace at the Circle, about 3 minutes short of the top. In fourth at the time, but with a large group about fifty yards back, I knew it would be a painful three minutes, which was made a little more painful by Packy and another passing me at the top, leaving me sixth in 8:03.

There was a fast crowd in the sprint, albeit without Johnny Utah, and things were looking good for me up to the final hundred yards. I was in fourth when the leader and Packy in #2 took off too fast for #3 to follow, meaning a gap was opening up just before the finish. I left #3 and passed Packy, but fifty yards too soon, because with thirty yards left, Walter Iooss came from just over my shoulder to beat my by a bike length. A little more patience and I might have had what Walter has, a sprint jersey. Maybe.
