Nevada City Classic - A Closer Look

“Lance must have attacked,” Mark said. And sure enough, Lance came flying around the corner, rocking his bike from side to side, ripping up the steep climb like it was a downhill. It was a thrilling attack. Seeing it, I realized how much I miss watching the ruthless, devastating kind of attack that Lance is able to make. None of this tentative, testing-the-waters, softening-up-the-others’-legs kind of attack - no, when Lance attacks, you stay attacked. By the time Ben Jacques-Maynes came by, with Levi in tow, they were already well behind.
