Here is what you can expect from me over the course of the next few days.
1. I am currently working on getting the results broken down into categories. That information will be available in the next few days right here.
2. Jerseys. I am going to be making another jersey order. These are going to need to be pre-paid. They are $70 and you can send a check, money order or well concealed cash to me with a size and a return address, but we can discuss that more formally in a few days.
3. I have started to write a full race recap. It is time consuming. Right now I have everything covered up to the point where I rode everyone out. I am just getting in the car to drive to Chatfield and arrange the first checkpoint. That has taken 1096 words. It's going to be a bit. Sorry. In the meantime I will share a portion with you. Here it is:
"...As the boys on the front did what they do best and accelerated toward the days first climb, I pulled off to the side and shifted into an easier cadence to wish the rest of the pack a great day. As I continued at a significantly slowed pace, I found myself at the top of the hill, still welcoming the trail of racers. It was pleasant there. The sun was crisp. The tail wind was encouraging. This is why I started this thing. The morning. The road. The countryside. The bikes. It was beautiful. It was happiness..."
