Carpooled down with Andrew freye and his GF Hattie. Thee hour drive an (extra 45 min for Andrew) and the late 2:15 PM start made for a long day.
I had a decent start but fell back right away. I think if I forced myself to keep with the rest of the group I would have probably puked. I think heat was getting to me; I had to slow down for a lap before things started feeling normal again. I was able to pass a bunch of broken riders who quit on them self’s. Everyone I went passed in my category with out exception complained about the hot weather.
I finished 10th (I think there was 26 in my category). Did a cool down with John Burns and jumped in a close by lake afterward. I didn't get home till 9:30 PM.
