2012 Madera County Stage Race

Last weekend did the Madera County Stage Race for the first time. It was a huge two days a racing for me. Lots of teammates and friends there too. Had good times.

Three stages. Saturday; crit, TT. Sunday; road race.


Big wide four corner crit. Lots of bunching up before the turns, not a lot of people holding their lines. Not very fast.

Got caught in a pileup. Bike was fine though and no broken bones. Was a few laps from the finish and got Same Time as the pack.


No TT bike, aero bars or aero helmet. Even in the fours, most people had all that junk. Was way out gunned.

Hit my target power though. 30th out of 43.

Road Race

One of the hardest races I've done. Finished 30 sec off what was left of the pack. 9th out of 43. Only 22 finished. Did a good job making the selections. Winds, rough roads, rollers and mechanicals decimated the field.

Ended up 14th out of 43 in the GC.
