Bonedeth on the front of the break with 15 laps to go. And the chase led by the United Healthcare Pro Cycling Team.

I decided to sit out of Thursday night’s race, and instead take some photos of the racers in the lovely spring sunset. The weeknight races are held at NYC’s first municipal airport, Floyd Bennet Field, which is now part of the Gateway National Recreation Area managed by the National Park Service. The windy, flat, cracked, overgrown runways of the abandoned airfield are the setting for our weeknight installments of suffering.

From yesterday’s Rapha NYC ride.

7:30am this morning. Heading back into NYC over the George Washington Bridge with James & Erik. These super early rides never cease to amaze. Sometimes it’s the pre-dawn light, sometimes it’s the mist on your face, and sometimes, it’s the landscape disappearing into the fog. I no longer dread the early morning rides, this is my inspiration.

Sharon was kind enough to wake up before dawn and photograph Sunday’s race in Central Park. She got a few good ones of me, including this one of me obviously not winning (center - all black).
