Big Jay’s Fat Ass - 101.4 @ 22.4 max 30.5

4:29:29

Well attended and organized this event has become a highlight of my cycling calendar. Perfect weather and lingering cloud coverage really helped the 12 hour riders. Big Jay took 1st with 237, Paul C and Martin with slightly less. Lady rider from up north did 12 hours and 200 I think, impressive.

Stayed near the front most of the time and tried to carry momentum in the corners instead of getting caught up in traffic and the gaps that form. Sean got a late start and TT’d to the lead group and did lots of work at the front

Mark flatted early and still pulled out 5 laps. Larry flatted at mile 95 and rolled in on it, both fronts, weird.

Fell apart around mile 85 and was pretty sure I would be dropped by Sean around mile 96. 2 gels, 2 packs sport beans, 2 bottles malto mix, 1.5 bottles water. Coca-cola at the end so good.

Favored moments:

Thanks to all those that toiled to make another great event happen, you’re much appreciated.
