It wasn't a walk in the park, but Sonya and I got it done again today taking 1st place by about 15 minutes over 2nd place. Our start was slow...and we eased into the 41 mile stage with the plan to pin it after about 1.5-2 hours of riding. Sonya was flying! She had me pushing hard on the climbs. She also was killing the downhills after the switch to the FS bike after riding the HT on Stage 1. Here is the video from the day!
We keep the leaders jerseys for tomorrow. We also go into Stage 3 with a 28 minute buffer. Tomorrow will not be easy as we will accumulate over 9,000ft of climbing on the stage.
