Misiryong Hill Climb Report
Sunday was the first big race here in Korea. It was a 20km hill climb and I raced in the mtb team category with 4 other guys from my team. We ended up placing 3rd which i was pretty happy with considering that we put all of our strongest hill climbers in the team for the road bike category. The race was really tough though but everyone who raced with me rode really well. It was extremely windy and I heard a lot of people even had to stop near the top of the climb because gusts were so strong! Im really glad i was on a mountain bike rather than a road bike with carbon wheels! I felt a lot stronger at this hill climb than i did last year so I think I'm in pretty good form. The tour de korea starts this friday! Wish me luck!
