Took 4th in the cat 4 training race today out at langford.  Worked hard throughout to keep the peloton together for teammate Tom Robinson's GC hopes.  Kept him safe and out of the wind throughout the 40 mile ride and put in a good leadout (522w 1min power) delivering him 150m from the line where he was able to get across 3rd despite a yellow line infraction that kept him from possibly contesting for the win.  averaged ~280 normalized power for the 1 hour 40 minute race.  Kept the peloton moving, averaged almost 23mph, which is pretty high for a BBC training race.  Feeling good and ready to relax this coming week leading into Tour of the Valley in Ohio.
