My fourth year back to Devonport, another year of dusting off some cobbwebs for the first race of the 2014 season. Training has been going relatively well, starting to add intensity to our base training. What a shock to the system that is! The week leading into Devonport, I had no idea what to expect with a mixed lead up. I know my strengths and I know my weaknesses and they were something I was going to have to play with on the weekend.
I told myself to push hard from the start as I wanted to maintain a gap between us and them. Not being as confident in my run as I would have liked I knew this would be my only chance to get a win or a podium finish. One other NZ girls came with me and we both worked together well. A little pinchy hill that we did 6 times was added into the course this year which I personally like as it adds another element into the race and broke the field up alittle more. After 2 laps another girl joined us for the rest of the ride and we pushed the pace all the way till the end. This definitley helped out and gave me alittle more rest from having my nose in the wind.
