Butterflies in my stomach
It was finally time to get my race on! I chose to start my season in Esneux, Belgium at the Superplastic Cup. All of my colleagues, even die-hard roadies, told me that Esneux was always a blast. So like the rest of the bc team, I started my 2018 race calendar there.
Together with 10 riders, I rode down to Esneux at the butt crack of dawn. A mixture of nerves and grogginess added even more angst to the questions that were running through my head. How hard was the course going to be? How much climbing? Am I even ready?
