The race was 100km or so and 12 laps with about 80 starters. My goal was to be at the front of the race, because lately I hide in the middle of the bunch. And I did it! I spent most of the race in the top 10 which was a really good feeling. It also allowed me to get in a few short breaks, help pull back the main break and do a couple attacks. Nothing I was in sticked, but I was just happy to be in the race, and not just pack fill.

On the drive home Jay, Yuki and I stopped at an Ikea-esk truck stop and got dinner which was actually pretty good!! I am so appreciative of Yuki for driving, Jay for her entertaining eating habits - rice pudding with pineapple because you don't have to chew haha - and for Harry for lending us the car :)
Next race is a local race in Breda with the girls and some men on Sunday, and Monday I have my first race with my new team!
