Terry Reisch

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.
