Flames burning today: Brandon, Rick, Rich, Tim, Mark and yours truly.
I believe Tim and I busted into the exclusive 30mph club. It took me two tries.
Featuring 11.7 mile TT today. Out of 74 riders, only two did it twice: Joel Thompson and I. We were first and second, got to the bottom, put the bikes back on the car and drove like hell back to the start, missed start time #2, but Don M was expecting us and he was fine with it; I had resolved to do it again either way. Joel went second to last and I was last. First attempt: 28.9mph. Second attempt: 30.7mph. Elevation loss of 700 ft with gusting side / front / tail winds. I’m in the 30+mph club and I’ll get a free T shirt.
Fun early Shootout yesterday with Brent, Y, Brandon, Jonathan and Mark. I resolved to just sit in and get the miles to save some for today, but a strong move by Big Mike on a TT rig drew me out to take the Sahurita sprint. Fun times. I flatted and a quick wheel change and I rolled back in with Mike M. and the remnants of the regular edition.
Good weekend on the bike. Plus Cyclovia with Y and JoAnne and then Flanders on a big screen.
Next up: Colossal Cave!
