Control Freaking

I'm not much of a control freak but today I was out on River Blvd doing Timmer's Time Trial Ladder Intervals when I got a flat on the second one at 25mph. At that point, you want to be a control freak. I was on the aero bars so instead of braking right away, I slowed down by not pedaling and maintained control of the bike. Next, I changed the flat and used the CO2 inflator. I probably got 75psi into the tire so that made high speed intervals a little difficult. All told, I did four intervals and then headed home for a total of 12 miles. Once home, I emptied the CO2 out of the tire and inflated it with real air... I'm waiting on a few parts to complete the build on my Niner...
