After a nice dinner with the family I turned my attention back to the race, with just five miles left I was sitting waiting and hoping someone from Team Novo Nordisk would try to attack and get the stage win. At the 3k mark Javier Megias attacked and opened a slight gap on the field, that close to the finish a small gap is all it takes to get the win, as Leanne was getting Care Bear ready for bed I was holding Sharkie and yelling "COME ON!! HOLD ON!! COME ON!!!" Leanne ran in and said "Oh it's the bike race, I thought "Sharkie" did something" As Javier was making the last few turns he was caught by two riders, he was about 400 meters from the win. Javier finished 6th overall, a very impressive finish!!
