Greenville Fall Cycling Extravaganza Day 1

Quick update from Greenville, raced hard tonight, made it onto the podium in 3rd place. Small but tough field! Strong teams from Hincapie and Subaru (3 riders each), and then a lot of strong solo riders, too. I made it into a couple good breaks, but with the downhill backside of the course and lots of strong riders not wanting to see the race go up the road, it always came back together. With maybe a lap and a half to go two riders slipped off the front and got a few seconds on the field. With half a lap to go, I attacked and was closing when I clipped a pedal hard in the last corner and thought I was going down. I still had a pretty good gap, though, so I was able to hold onto third with only one rider passing me before the line. I believe it was Darius from Myogenesis who passed me just before the line, and congrats to the Hincapie rider (and the whole team) who won. Great race. I think it was Wilmar from Hincapie taking a well deserved win.
