Sheppard's Report from Napa

Clear skies with warm temperatures marked the second day of world cup competition. The course consisted of a twenty five minute loop that contained over a thousand feet of climbing and some serious descending.

From the gun, the hammer was dropped by the single digit number plate club. Counters and attacks were attempted by everyone, but coming to the forefront were Miguel Martinez and Cadel Evans. The closest North Americans were Tinker, White Rasta, and myself sitting in the late teens with Roland Green, Steve Larson, and Andreas Hestler trailing.

After some sick descending on lap three, White Rasta propelled himself into a group that consisted of Dupouey, Hermida, Saucer, and Nick Craig. Tinker meanwhile was yo-yoing between the front runners and the chase group while I faded to the late 20's with some bad intestinal problems. I'm not one to use excuses, so I won't! Here is a hint for all the up and coming boys and girls: if your eggs are undercooked at breakfast, don't eat them! My problem lasted two laps as a nasty bout of food poisoning set in, all that kept me in the race was the thought of visiting one of those lovely port-a-potties after the race (as I write this, I am currently in the fetal position)!

On the late laps Martinez slowly moved away, White Rasta climbed to fourteenth, Tinker faded back to twenty four, and I worked into twenty first by the end. Actually, I was involved in a sprint to the line with Matt Wallace, Bart Brentjens, and Tinker...I made my move with half a kilometer to go and held them off earning some good UCI points in the process.
