Today I raced in my first ever bike race at the Sea Otter Classic! I live in Alaska, so the only training I've been able to do has been on a stationary trainer. Let me tell, you, I got my a$$ handed to me. That first climb right out of the gate was a killer and I never seemed to recover from it. I did however get into a groove and ended up finishing the race (even though I was lapped) unlike some other quitters out there. I now know that I have a long way to go and a lot of work to do. Any other Otter-goere, please chime in w/ your experiences.
