I will not review the route again, as it really is almost the same as Thursday. Eric was fun to ride with and easy to guide. After returning, we caught the peleton riding along the Arno as they came into Florence, then rode to the apartment. Eric stayed for a couple of passes of the group and then returned to his hotel room. A couple of guys from the team came over and along with Emily, we all enjoyed the men's road race. Sooooooo fun!

The men's pro road race was the final event today at the world
championships here in Florence. It was more than a little wet for most of
the race, but it cleared up for the final 2 laps. The whole week
has been so much fun to watch and be a part of. Congratulations
to the city and everyone here for making it such a wonderful week.
The race was super close in the end and really fun to watch.
