“Finished to race today with the bunch sprint finish in the pack where I wanted to be. The lap before the finish Scott Clark and myself got away from the pack for about 15km. The pack caught us with about 8km left to go. On the last King of the Mountain I came first so I got 5 points so I was pleased with that. I’m in a the position where I thought I would be so I’m glad with that. The time trial is tomorrow which is not my specialty so I have to limit my loses and just ride steady and see what happens. The BIG race will be on Monday where everything will break up for sure and real nasty climbs so I’m looking forward to that.”

 

For those of you not familiar with bike racing, when you finish with a group, everyone in that group gets the same time. There may be bonuses for placing, and as Ambrose pointed out, he picked up a bonus for a King of the Mountain win. So, at the moment, he is right in the mix with the leaders. He says his Time Trial is not his specialty, but he has spent the last two years tearing himself inside out to get better. He has a new time trial bike, he has his bike dialed in to fit him perfectly, and he is in the best shape I have ever seen him in. I think he might surprise himself on this one. I’ll keep you posted as I get info.
