Stage two saw Heather Logan-Sprenger win solo, after a break that lasted a significant part of the race. Super impressive.
I went off of the course into the shallow, rocky ditch on a twisty downhill section in the Gila National Forest. I didn't go down though, and hopped right back in the race. I wasn't feeling top-shape for the first whole two thirds of the stage but I feel like my form is coming back. Thanks a lot to Anne for bringing me back into a decent spot in the pack when I was dangling, and MoJo for brining me my first Coke of the race. I needed a bit of life knocked into me and it did the trick.
Other than that I stayed hydrated with my Eload, and I fueled myself with 3 bars during the race. Even if you don't feel hungry, it's important to eat on the bike!
