I was thinking I should just sit in the field and wait for the field sprint but I saw a break go that I thought might be able to stay away until the end. It had gotten about a 20 second lead on the pack when I decided to try and bridge up. I attacked out of the pack hard on the long up hill and managed to bridge after about 1km of chasing but I really blew myself up with the effort. We had built a good lead on the field though and I thought we might stay away until the finish. However with 2 laps to go the field caught us!
At this point I was pretty tired but I thought I would give the field sprint for second place a shot. I went into the last corner(400m to go) in 3rd place and started sprinting but I quickly blew up and got passed by a bunch of people. I ended up around 15th or so but my teammate Yeon Deok took 3rd so overall not a bad day for us.
The race calendar switches focus to mountain biking for a while now with a bunch of big mountain bike races coming up in late September and October. This weekend I'm doing a mountain bike race in Daegu. I just saw the start list and the field looks pretty good. It should be a fun race.
