“I dropped my chain, and I had to stop and put it back on, and it wrapped around,” he said. “It just kind of sucks when all of that happens. Once I was in that group, I just felt so strong. It was just a lot about luck and it just wasn’t my day today. I felt like I was one of the strongest guys out there today. My training was perfect, my bikes felt great … but I had to come from so far back just to get to where I was. It could have been better.”

Disappointed, he continued. “I feel like I let a lot of people down … but I did everything I could to be as fast as I could and I dealt with what I had. But it was a little too much for me to overcome.”

Fellow American racer Curtis White told us, “It was really good. My first lap was all right. My start could have been better, could have been worse. I started moving up, by the second lap I was 15th, and I was picking guys off one by one and getting into groups. I wanted top 10, but that’s close.”
