Siting here next to the Mississippi in Burlington, Iowa. Awesome weather right now, sunny, 75 deg. Earlier it was sunny and HOT! Ugh! Then the thunderstorms rolled in and it rained ... right on cue for the 3's race!
Back in a bit as soon as pics finish uploading ...
who won the 3's? what about 123?
I wanted to go but couldn't find anywhere to stay. I ended up doing a wisport race with a bunch of beans guys. Loberg won and we had 4 (all) in the top 7. Then we did another ~30 miles in the bluemounds area.
3's - Sam Stone led the thing from the git go until the last lap - he was caught on the downhill by two guys. Because of the lapped traffic, the announcer totally missed it - the winner raised his arms in a great Post Up, but we all were thinking ... "Who's this joker??" (so I erased the picture). Then, later, they figured out what happened. I was not pleased. But I missed most of the 3's race anyway ... had to ... well, take a wizz.
I've got a few more pix up on PPix.Com.
Time to tank up with gas at $2.29 / gal !! and head home.
