“I was in second wheel, or third wheel. Jeremy (Powers) just stopped short and I crashed into him and fell over, kind of shifted my bike, got back up and had to start from zero again. Actually I had a nice start for once, and then after that I crashed one more time and it was just a comedy of errors but no one was laughing.”

About the course. “Really, really hard. It’s like Granogue and Granogue is a tough race. Lots of elevation when you are pedaling, it’s slick, there are roots and ruts and you’re always kind of dancing on your bike, it’s a really tough course.”

By the way, that is a mustache that Johnson is sporting, it’s for Movember month.
