    Congrats BDG! I noticed you're on the horns and grabbing the brake in this pic instead of on the aerobars:

    Did you slow down so the pic wouldn't be a blur?

    Oh, you'll still be nervous, I don't think that can be helped. But at least you'll know deep down that you don't need to be nervous.
