Almanzo 100 #2 in the books
Well, another hell-ride it was. Some heavy hitters showed up on the start line, and the opening pace was blistering. I held on as long as a I could, lost contact after the first town, St. Charles, and clawed may way to the finish some 6:28 later. I accomplished my goal of a top 10 finish, so I'm satisfied. Big thanks to Chris Skogen for another stellar event. thanks to Mark E, Kevin, Nick, Sascha, Nick's brother Chris for putting us up, (or putting up with us?) Andy from Peace Coffee for towing me out of Chatfield, and everyone involved. A great event with great people. Real scenic, too. Here's a map of the course.
