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.
managed to circle back after some recovery for grilling and beers:
Sean TT’ing and catching us after starting late.
Larry missing the same turn I did 2 years ago.
Razzle splitting the pack open near the beginning.
Thanks to all those that toiled to make another great event happen, you’re much appreciated.
