Plain and simple, today was a horrible day for our team. A couple of us tried for the breakaway early and ended up paying for it when the KOM's started about 20km in. From there the course and attacks were relentless and zero of our team members made the front group. There are no excuses to be made. I hope that the shame/embarrassment that I feel about today is shared by my teammates and that we use it as motivation over the next two days to be present in the race. That's it.
