2nd 24 - 2nd second place. damn.
ernesto sponsors princeton tech and ergon were on scene - big weekend for both. needless to say, i think you'll be seeing a lot of riders running both products.
run was chaotic as usual - this year i didn't get any elbows to the ribs, so that was a bonus.
this year, we did a little prologue lap - worked out really well to string it out.
steve and i had another rider in tow, we were the first three in the wooods and we had a good gap on the next group of riders.
steve set a high pace and soon we were in a small group of 5 riders. once clear of the main pack of riders, steve backed off the pace. i hammmered on - i was the first rider to complete the first lap.
i led for a straight 14'ish hours - then i had a bad lap. steve capitalized on my upset tummy.
that 20 minute gap he got on one lap was enough - by the time the race was over, he held on for the win.
thanks to ergon and jeff for setting me up with their new line of gloves - gotta try them out of you run the grips. i ran both the short and the long finger gloves the entire race - no blisters, hells ya. watch for the review up soon.
also, thanks to justin and the gang from princeton tec. only 1 battery change the entire race. the burn times on the batteries are just amazing.
thanks to all those that cheered me on - seems like i had a lot of fans out there.
with that, i need to get some much needed rest.
