That crosswind today called for teamwork and I’m happy to say day 3 of #raphatoc is in the books!
TOC Day 2
Today felt easy despite the 78 miles and 6,700’ of climbing. My body felt good, spirits were high in our group, and conditions were, for the most part, the definition of perfect. My mind was really quiet and I felt strong and confident. We finished by descending Angels Crest highway, which was cool to ride again. Despite a headwind, it was equally as wonderful today as it was during the RGR. Today’s confidence is overshadowed a bit by the elevation profile of tomorrow’s stage, but I know I can ride 90 miles and I know I can climb 13,000 feet. This is all such a great experiment in doing new things and pushing my limits and I’m excited to see how I hold up.
Rapha TOC Day 1
Just a few quick notes on today…
- My legs are tough, my shoulders are weak.
- My Domane descends incredibly and I love the Decker Canyon descent.
- Those who longboard down mountains simultaneously terrify and amazing me.
- These women are amazing.
