A great day at National Championships Road Race - 121kms for SKCT
We got 4th (Naveen John) and 5th (Lokesh) today.
SKCT was represented by 4 riders - Me, Sangamesh, Naveen and Lokesh.
Proud to have worked my ass off as domestique for our captains to get 4th and 5th.
Chased attacks all day long.
Put NJ into days first breakaway by chasing attacks and him sitting on my wheel to counterattack.
Controlled bunch's pace at front with Lokesh after NJ went clear.
Crashed along with Lokesh when some idiot in front crashed in feed zone - chain dropped. Put chain back on, adjusted my shifter caught the bunch again working with Lokesh - both of our knees bleeding.
Worked with Lokesh in his attacks. Finally when he went clear too, controlled bunch's pace with Sangamesh to ensure Lokesh doesn't get chased anymore.
In last km, lead out for my fellow team mate Sangamesh for his bunch sprint.
A great day - i felt good and strong

    Well - u get back up and keep fighting mate.
    Last 3 weeks I kicked my butt seriously in training - so much I'd be dazed in office all day long, i even went for a mini training camp with our team in Bangalore and worked from my office in Bangalore.
    I dont remember the last time I watched TV
    All that pain, all that sacrifice, to ensure I am to my best today and give myself to the job I've been trusted with!!
