16.4 miles of fun up Larch Mtn (@3,400ft of climbing) that started with trying to punch into a headwind that was gusting up @ 25mph. Other than the wind it was a perfect day for riding a bike. It was nice to see so many show up for such a late season event. It was even nicer to win GOLD in the Cat 4, with a time of 1:03:44. Came in 5th overall, missed beating the top Cat 3 rider by 7 seconds.
The amazing thing was everybody got whooped by a guy in the Masters 50 group, he was at 1:00:05.
