Photos from Boucles du Printemps By Soren Adair

Bonjour Ca va ,  

Over the last weekend i raced Boucles du Printemps , A two day three stage race,  with the wind blowing it brought back 
feelings of Southland conditions,  with gutter action both days to weaken the the bunch,  

Couple of the highlights for me -

1st Stage - Getting to the front 20km into stage and hitting the gas on the right hand side,  looking back and seeing total the bunch in ones and twos all trying to work out what to do,  half the race there and then lost 28mins in the final 130kms.  
                  -  Taking all the 6 KOM climbs following a little solo effort .
                  -  Awarded most attacking rider on the day to double podium time,

 2nd Stage - No real highlights here apart from the rest of team leaving skin suits in the truck and having the truck go straight to the finish,  made for some hot conditions with all there winter kit on,

3rd Stage - A final quick 100km sprint to the finish,  after the TTT wasn't in a good overall GC position any more and has the KOM in the bag,  so got to play the team card,  try for early break,  or wait and help out team sprinter in the final loops,  Option 2 got played,  rolled the front hard for last 30ishKms never got back to the early break,  sprinter finished mid pack,
