Day 1: "4
minutes of pain today..."
My name is Jonathan Clarke
and I ride for Toyota-United Pro Cycling Team.
Our goals for this week at
California are obviously a stage win with our speedster Ivan Dominguez and looking for a great G.C position with our Tour
man Ben Day. We have many other cards to play with a few other handy guys on our team, my big brother Hilton Clarke and Henk
Vogels just to name a couple. I'm going to be lending a helping hand to all and maybe try to skip up the road when I can.
Back to that 4 minutes of
pain today......... Both Day and Rollin put in a great effort and the rest of the team did with solid rides. For me, it was
over before it started and as I crossed the line it felt like my lungs were in my throat.
Hopefully, tomorrow I have
a stage win to talk about with any of our sprinters, Clarke, Vogels or Dominguez. I think it is time for bed as I need sleep.
See ya soon.
