Once again, Rev3 attracted an awesome pro field for Quassy. Leading up to the race, I was a little bit nervous as I seemed to have mucked up my timing for my races. The plan for the season wasn’t turning out as I had hoped with doing so many races early in the season to get fit. As things turned out, I had a great swim and managed to get onto the lead group with Terenzo and Matt Reed.Everyone hit the bike course hard right from the start. A couple of guys broke away early. After about 30 miles, the second group caught up and there was quite a large group going into the last 15 miles. James Cunnama attacked shortly after that and dragged 4-5 other guys with him. I misjudged the attack and ended up getting stuck between the 2 groups and chasing alone. Heading out onto the run, I felt fairly comfortable, but the punishing hills on the bike course were starting to hurt my legs. I haven’t been able to train much over those kind of hills. I had a great battle on the run with Richard Allen but unfortunately with about 2 miles to go, my legs were just too sore to run any harder. I managed to limp home for 7th. Once again, Rev3 put on an awesome race. In my opinion, it’s one of the best 70.3 distance races in the world.
