Awesome as always!
No pictures, the sideways rain and 35 degree temperatures were not conducive to carrying a camera.
Skipped today's portion due to slight knee pain (not sure if it's the "fat" q factor or that the cleat was misaligned on my right shoe...). Not worried about it going forward because I did pull the plug so preemptively early. I've got a ton of stuff coming up fast and getting a bit of extra rest certainly won't hurt either.
Everyone involved with the ride was great, things were well planned out, the riders all had great attitudes etc. etc.. I know this is the same weekend every year as Trans Iowa and the Decorah Time Trials but I highly recommend making the trip.
Hope you had a good weekend. Congrats to the Trans Iowa finishers... more of you finished % wise than finished the cat 1/2 road race here in MN (so maybe I should also be congratulating those of them who finished... way to go Brandon on another win as well!). I wish the weekend were 3 or 4 weeks long so I could have done both and the time trials. I had fun keeping track of TI updates etc. and trying to predict what would happen next etc.. Some of it was more predictable than other bits, that's for sure!
Results - Thanks to all who came out to make the 2017 Dirt Bag another good day for the gravel community. The previous days rain made the course a little soft and put...
