Good for you, adding brake rub for the race ;)
Hey, if the only other competitor already told you that you had the win, you add to give yourself some extra challenge, right?
Think how fast your bike will feel on the next ride :)
Maybe time to "upgrade" to some heavy wheels for the next challenge.
Those had better be awesome socks if they're 1st prize. Congrats! :)
They are cold weather cycling socks :)
