The conditions were perfect with a light breeze and temps in the mid 60's!! Only issues were with me, earlier in the week I was in a local lake with Pam and I's 2 dogs and my insulin pump got damaged!!! Then when I was riding on my trainer before the race my HR monitor stopped working??? It came down to reading my body trying to figure if it was the physical pain of biking or if it was the feelingd of high sugars or the feelings of going too hard. ---Oh well!!
That all being said during the race I was bridging up from group to group and feeling pretty good! I set a PR on Fire Tower---Nice but on the decent is where things got a little hairy while I was going around one of the many large puddles I slipped out and landed in the middle of the thing. My bike was all twisted up and after I straighted that up I had to hall ass missing a tandom for a fast road section---Dam. All in All I lost 3(+) min and still got 2:28!!
Well I am out of here

Starts with a 6-mile climb which I took pretty easy. Then came the stopping in the single track because of people not able to ride--then came the the broken spoke at 6 miles--then came the person who bangs into me on a decent making me go into the sage brush--then came the heat exhaustion in 90 degree weather with bad leg cramps---then it came to survival!!

Even though it was a good time the 1st half was not a positive thing for me personally!! My HR climb very quickly and I had no pwr to speak of even when I lowered my efforts. At "00" I stopped to speak with Pam and the dogs basically to say this is going to be a long effort and I have everything. When people were flying by me as I was talking with Pam I told her i would see her at the finish in a very long time.
Then all of sudden I started to feel great and ended passing people the whole way back---too little too late!!
