What is better than a tailwind?

I'll tell you the answer...nothing.

A strong tailwind changes everything when it comes down to your finishing strategy. Last night we were jumping at least 200 or 400 meters earlier and holding the speed all the way to the line due to the help of a little "push" from mother nature. Overall a good evening of work on the bike and I felt good finally. Being able to ride consecutive days makes a world of a difference for me. Everything feels loose and the power felt like it was there. Today it is about taking it easy....and then tomorrow. The distance scares me a little, but it's just really the 7am ride...maybe faster?? We'll see.
