Good for you! No worries about overheating today....Your kind of day :)
Thanks! Ya, it wasn't the cold that was the problem today. Or even the wind which was my main concern all week. Two inches of slippery, sliding snow presented challenges for all but the fat bikers. The main goal was just to stay on top of the bike. Most of the snow fell this morning (I believe about a half inch yesterday afternoon).
I have no idea how some of the elite men could ride so fast through that snow without wiping out. Their tires were no wider than ours.......
Congrats on the fantastic finish!
I could barely drive this morning (8:30 to 9:00 am), even having to abort a run up a hill I couldn't climb to drive a two mile detour of less grade. I can only image the biking challenge in that mess.
Several cars in ditches on the way to the venue.
