Thanks Kim for the photos- there are lots more, but I'm partial to those that include me and people I know.
The 'race' was brutal. The winning four were simply stronger than hell. My own team was also strong, but not strong enough. We hung in for a while, gave extremely hard chase but ultimately came up short. Once I felt we weren't going to win I struggled physically and mentally to keep the pedal down and found myself struggling to keep pace with my team for mile upon mile.
In the end it was a great day though, it was a great day spent with friends on bicycles. The highlight may have been heading back to the checkpoint and hanging out with some of the DFL contenders.
Official Waitlist - Sorry! - I always feel bad about the waitlist... but I get terrified trying to keep track of everything with more and more people out on the roads, so I don't know ...
