Wow bro! I knew you were a tough dude, and now it is overly confirmed. You rock! So happy for you. You must be on cloud nine. Let us know how your bod is feeling...
Congrats. I am very happy for you. That climb is amazing!
Thanks Anniemac & Kswede!
Quads are properly trashed, fell hard early and my knee is swollen (only a bruise), other than that feel very good. I will sleep well tonight.
It was a lot of long climb. I was ready for it, and played the game well, maintaining my 'old man' pace, and crushed the flats and a good bit of the downhill. Can't wait to do some more analysis. :)
Terrific result! Congratulations!!
Wow! Zowie! It's official - you da man! Sweet effort, planning, worrying, preparing, tapering and all the rest that goes with this crazy sport.
Thanks, everyone! I'm very satisfied with my result. I don't think there was much more for me to give to that race. On to Worlds End! Double the fun ... a hair less climb, though. Fingers crossed for more perfect weather.
