Humbled by the Harmon
Rode the Harmon 100 yesterday and came off the bike feeling pretty beat up, so I'm trying to analyze what the heck happened. I'm not a newbie. Rode it and four other centuries last summer, and it was my fourth this year, including a double metric. I ride with the McHenry Co. Bike Club, so the entire route area comprises our stomping ground.
I can see nothing different in how I prepared for and rode the Harmon compared to other centuries. Pace was about the same as last year, although it seems like the wind a tad more challenging.
So in trying to figure out aftereffects, I'm curious how anybody else came out of it.
