It was tough. There were not any hills per say so that was nice. There were a few grades on the freeway that were more rolling hills. I figured I would be dead after the ride but I wasn't. I came home took an hour nap and was back out working as a course marshal for the Criterium that my friend was racing in. I think if I would have had to done it solo it would have been tougher than it was. It's energized me to no end in knowing that I can do it. I'm ready for the next one.
There were some sad notes to the ride.
On the century there were two riders that went down, one of them sadly passed tonight from massive head injuries. Both riders went down at approximately the same place, at different times. The first to go down sustained a fractured cheek bone, broken scapula, 8 broken ribs, punctured lung, etc. The other was a 29yr old woman. Details have been sketchy on her accident but it was bad enough that her helmet shattered.
