Faster than a speeding cement mixer

Rolled Monarch this morning with Hammerson.  Warm day with a headwind going up hill.  The most notable moment of the ride was the decent of the double hill.  We were making about 40 mph downhill when a cement mixer passed us.  The draft was so big that it sucked me to over 51 mph.  That speed carried all the way through the little rise before the middle school.  What a thrill!

It was very cool. By the way, I love the peaches make you faster header.

Wonder if I've got the brass left to ride like that. I can't imagine what a crash at 51mph would do, since I was only going 22 or so.

Did you see the Verbrugghe etc crash of Sunday's stage? Lovely way to go...
