The Tour of Bright finished

Well it is over and thank goodness for that and my legs are HURTING today seriously......We raced up Mt HOtham yesterday and overall I am happy with the Tour. I think the times are wrong a bit as my time this year for stage 1 is slower than two years ago, but I know I am riding bettter.

In summary
- 4th in ITT - happy with that although would have liked to win some cash and get a better placing.
- Happy with my mindset on Hotham - seriously until the final climb I was feeling positive about the climb - kind of resolved in my approach to the climb and I did push hard on the flat section
- Happy with winning third in the Sprint points - Now that is seriously funny and I think I should start training to sprint because it might be something I can improve at - I KNOW I can improve - the question is just how much can I improve.
- The weekend was fun the weather was good and overall the best part was my attitude and how much more centred (I think that is a good choice of word) I felt....and not so much in the pressure cooker.
Oveerall I was 19th of about 34 in my grade, I think the gradings between A and B were a little out as the top girls in B could have easily been on the podium in A grade but that is no big deal it just means I have to train harder for next year.

Signing off happy here now.....

Great work on your Stage 2 ITT result. I rode the course the night before and liked at I saw.
