I didn’t come in last, but it was darn close. The results from the first Camp Hilbert race are up at RunRideRace.com. I came in 18th out of 21 starters and 20 finishers in expert vet. My first two laps, before my mechanical, were real consistent at just over 34 minutes each. The last lap took nearly 38 minutes between my failing endurance, stopping to wrap the busted spoke around its neighbor and the subsequent shifting problems. If I’d been able to keep up my pace, I might have moved up a couple places. Still I finished a good 15 minutes behind the expert vet winner (that’s five minutes per lap!) Long way to go in this new class.
Danbo made it to last night’s recovery ride around Norfolk. My legs hurt. I pushed it a bit over the Hampton Blvd. bridge, but it was too much like work and I settled in for easy spinning. Niether Bill nor Tim (Monday regulars) showed, but the sun stayed up longer and it was nice riding in the light instead of the dark.
