Finds from the Grind - Chasing a White Jersey

Attempting to close a 4 second gap down the San Gabriel River Trail. You can see how long it takes to close down a small gap when two riders are traveling almost the same speed. It took me five minutes to erase the gap from a standing start, with a tailwind, going downhill. For a lighter guy like me, that tailwind wasn't going to help as much as the white jersey guy, but I knew when the trail started doing its rolling slight uphill action, I had a chance to catch and pass.
