Cycling-MTB (RACE!) 2:40:00  29.7 mi (11.1 mph) +4103ft
super fun race up in breck. the race went out ballistic up the first time and I tried to hand, big mistake, for the first half and kind of cracked. took a bit to recover a handful of dudes passed me. then i just started riding steady/hard. reeled in guys for the majority of the first half of the race then pretty much rode solo until the final miles.
i was caught by two dudes and were hammering together. with a few miles to go it started pouring and I took a digger in a rock garden and they got a way.. there went the podium... but no worries. 5th in 19-39. love the trails up there.
