Stage 5

Posted: March 21, 2009 in austin carroll

I new going into stage 5 and I was going to be on the bike for a very long time. The last 80k was all up hill, I could not wait. The first 30ks we hit 91 speed bumps not the nice kind like the ones with grooves in them.  When I was told that from Axle I realized after why my arms were so sore and that was just 30ks. I ended up in the grupetto with all my buddy’s from Livestrong   It was a hard day, did not do a lot of work.  What made it hard was riding for 7 hours and 30 minutes. It was a good day I just wanted to get through the day. I knew if I could finish this stage it would be good for the last three days.
