2012 Almanzo Gentleman's Ride- brief race recap and images

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.

  1. Your jersey rocks. Who was on your team? Who was on the winning team?
