Lance and George Hincapie talked about having a 'no chain' day, in one of the many Dvds I have featuring the two famous Americans. A magical day in which the legs just go and the wheels just spin. Today I managed to get the pretty much dead opposite, maybe the feeling of having a slow puncture all day, or a rubbing brakepad. Today the legs just didnt go. And although its pretty gutting, I tried to make the most of it, but to no avail. However as always I have taken a lot from it, learnt a good lesson, and I will be back.

No race report today, this is one race that I am leaving behind for good.
