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.
Hitting the Hero Gravel. - I wan't able to ride Monday due to Gymnastics and with rain predicted all day today into Thursday I really wanted to ride on Tuesday. Well, in the morning...
