Winter Classic, Colonial Knob. Certainly lived up to reputation, but apart from the one big climb early in the course, only turned into the suffer fest I expected in the last half hour. Mostly a steady clean run but lost a bit of time in the native forest section 7-16. Not as much as some, it seems I was leading the M40 race by 11. (John R who I hadn't expected to see at all caught me at 12) Missed my chance to take advantage of any further mistakes by taking a Wayne Cretney memorial route choice into the fight some way from 15, biggest miss of the day. Kept being caught by a couple of others who should have been well ahead enough times to keep motivated but not enough in the tank at the end to win that little 3 way battle.
