So I just wanted to share this:
That's the medal I got for winning my age group and taking 8th place overall in my first bike race this past weekend.
The funny thing is, I had every intention of racing on my Trek DF, but I wrecked my chain at the last minute and couldn't replace it in time. So off I went to the race with my Sun EZ-3 USX HD trike. I honestly didn't expect to be very competitive, because the trike is extremely heavy, but fortunately I was able to spend a little time making adjustments and got a little extra speed out of it.
Throughout the race, I got a lot of comments from the volunteers and other riders. After I crossed the finish line, the race director asked me if I got any extra power. I asked him how much his bike weighed and when he realized that my trike weighed 3.5 x that, I reminded him how I had to climb all the same hills. Oh! - And by the way, I weigh twice as much as you, too!
Sorry for bragging, just not used to being this proud.
