Finally a weekend with just one race to focus on, Terry Reisch took place in Hillsdale Michigan and in line with the name, the course contained some elevation change. Our race was 8 laps of the same 4 mile circuit. A 10 man breakaway was established shortly after the start of the second lap. The typical break where no one wants to do any work, so I found myself doing much more than my share just to make it stick. After trying a couple of times to get away on my own, I resolved to the fact that I was going to have to take this one in an uphill sprint. The sprint was very similar to the one at our Lost Nations course, so I figured I would go with what worked the last time and try to go hard early and make a gap and hold it. The problem was my legs were pretty tired, so I didn’t make the gap that I had hoped, and two guys in the break were quick to get on my wheel. In the end they both made it around me and I finished 3rd. Finally, after a long dry spell I managed to find the podium! Overall I had a great race and rode really strong which gives me a lot of confidence for this weekend, Tour of the Valley, which is my target race of the year.
