The weather certainly was a blessing compared to last year.
Lovely water temps. At one point on the way back I saw a couple of guys get up and walk along the sandbank, they were gaining on others. Wonder if that is allowed?
Wasted some seconds fiddling with Garmin Watch
Bike 1:06:51 - 21.1MPH
I enjoyed the ride. The course is interesting no major climbs but constant rollers. I did try something new… yes I know (never try something new for a race) I installed one of those behind the seat bottle holders from Profile, it also has and adapter to carry two CO2 cartridges and a pump piece. About 7 miles into the ride I heard a load clanking sound, one of the cartridges had come loose and hit the rear wheel before bouncing along the ground…. About 5 miles later the second one went as well. The poor guy behind me certainly got a fright…. Not sure why this happened as I am certain that’s what those holes are for…..
In and out. Fast
Run 48:57 Rank 96
I forgot how rolling the run course was. The outbound leg had me huffing and puffing but once I got to the turn around things felt much better and the lovely overcast weather certainly helped.
This is a nice race, fairly close by. It’s not crowded and well organized. The Race Schwag is not the best, no medal, no goodies in the race packet etc but it’s a great course and a fun race.
