TKM Noize:
The other week I called for two turns on Noize, and to be honest with you, a couple of minutes before I rolled out of home, I wasn't even sure I was going to do Noize... it was a toss up with NRR.

Once I decided, the mission turned to getting a warm up in. I didn't want to face the first 5 minutes of the return leg with cold legs, so ripped through a couple of sprints and a short tempo effort, then headed to Cafe Racer to start the pain.

To cut the story somewhat short, 2 rolls were achieved, and both times I thought I'd reached a pain limit, only to have to dig deeper to catch the wheel of the next rider.

When it came to the end and the sprint I was perfectly placed on DK's wheel, who was set up on Smax's... but when Smax peeled and DK kicked I had zero left to go with him. Not being able to sprint smarts a little, but it's the price of being focused on the longer efforts.
