Team Time Trial Race 3 Done

We're getting closer to the end.

* 15km individual with 45sec penalties per miss.

* Two of the four of the men are sick and didn't race. It was a race between Leif and I.

* Neither of us had a spectacular race. Leif had the better of the two and will race the relay in Ruhpolding

* Weather felt like it was spring time. Snow held up better than expected, but still soft enough for a grueling effort.

* To be fair a better race for the both of us could have been more likely if we had had better race prep.

* We left Slovakia yesterday morning and were in the van all day instead of pre viewing the course like any other normal professional race.

* Next few days will be easier as I work towards the last race on Saturday.

* Hang in there. We're almost done!
