Turns out we placed 6th in the TTT, 39" behind the winners. Great for the morale going into tomorrow, where it's going to be SLUGFEST in the rain. If you're watching the live feed be sure to take note of Eichele hill (pronounced IKE-lee). It's the second KOM about 35mi into the stage, and on paper it's not much but we pre-rode the course and I promise fireworks. It has 2km of narrow, twisty highway grade leading into 600m of 28% (not a typo) grade. There's a turn at the top then it immediately goes down a fairly treacherous descent. Heads will roll.
