The Big One!
Sorry for no great updates and/or tales of riding and racing. Been focused alot on the Big One- Shenandoah Mountain 100!! Ed survived North Georgia despite the rain and "fool's gold" laden mud, which turned into a 50 miler instead of 100. Even the pros were worried about survival when most people's brake pads were gone after only 30-ish miles of riding! Since it was two 50 mile laps, and clearly dangerous conditions they shortened the race to one lap. From talking to Ed a good training ride and more importantly no crashes or any significant bike problems because the important race is Sunday! Literally am loading the car to go right now a travel north to wonderful Virginia. No rain, not hot- should be fantastic (it always is)! Stories, pics, etc. next week sometime. GO TEAM ED!!!!!!!!!
