Race Report:

Rode mainly with Mike Sevier, who is a super beast that pulled me all day while I did the work on the descents. It was a little rainy, cold and sweaty on the first part but ended up being a nice day.

Took a late start to enjoy the prior evening with the group and to avoid the riff raff energy sink of "who's going to finish first." The competitiveness is pretty hilarious especially when guys duck out ahead of the group at rest stops to claim victory or start from the bottom or ride in circles in the parking lot to claim they did the most miles. Anyway, it was the end of my epic training week and I had a great time with my wife and friends. I was exhausted for a good week and a half coming off epic week.
