Today was the Skoda Velorace Dresden with the 42km distance on the program. It was not that far (I prefer to listen carefully to such events), but from the flying start the field went off, like a fast train. So push the pin all the way and try to stay tuned for the first 10km. At some point, a group of about 20 people had found, which I could connect to the finish. There was not much hanging from the great location during the race, so I had more to do with myself and to focus on the small gaps in the field, to clear anyone out ... probably the lot of the racing rookie. But what kept hanging were the crowds of viewers, which has made it a great experience for me today.
