Winning Sweetwood

Winning Sweetwood: There was a climb up Fifth Street last year when I nearly cracked the Animal then blew up and finished fifty feet behind him, and that means more to me than any of the times I’ve finished ahead of everyone else. [I know exactly how he feels. Last Sunday on the short and steep opening climb I passed a friend who says she’s not a fast climber, but certainly climbs better than I in general, and nearly caught someone else whom I never have caught, and may never catch, on a climb. It meant more to me to almost latch onto his wheel than a lot of other cycling related things. I don’t finish climbs ahead of everyone else, but it’s nice to think that one day, with continued perseverance, I might. Head for the hills!]
