....aways a great race. Thanks to Pat, Linda and the rest of the Snakebite crew. Saturday was my birthday, so I got got up early, drank coffee, read the paper, gave the kids and wife some hugs and rolled out for 40 mile ride to Valley City. Fifty miles later, I arrived at about 11:50am for a 12:30 start. Not too bad!! Signed up, filled the bottles, took off the frame pump and seat bag, chatted a bit and lined up for the 12:30 start. It was hot, so three larger water bottles were the order for the day. Up next was a 4 x 12 mile rolling circuit compliments of Medina Co's finest terrain. Legs felt good, no cramps, a good birthday. Pooped out and sat up for the sprint. Caught a ride home with FAST Ray and Mark from Square Wheels and we stopped at a cool farmers market where I purchased glorius tomatos for $1.50/lb...fucking yeah!! I was a tad late for my b-day party at my sisters but rolled over 107 miles for the day. Good times. Thanks to Rick for the Blue Moon and the pics. Later, BRD.
