The last few years have been increasingly disappointing... mechanical problems, fitness problems, since 2011 it's been a bit of a nightmare.
This year I feel... cautiously optimistic? My gravel riding has been great, got a bunch of long rides in this spring. Marathon training too, which has helped my cardio big-time. Not entirely confident with the leg-busting stuff that tends to cause me to cramp - but hopefully things will all hang together and I can get back to a top 500 or better finish.
