Thanks for the comments. It was a great ride, although the organizers took a lot of heat about the organization (I heard some 1500 riders were kicked off the course due to over crowding). I had to walk a mile or so near the Ross Island Bridge due to the crowd, but otherwise it was smooth for me. I noticed an awful lot of riders without bibs, I have to assume the seemingly high percentage of "crashers" makes it hard for the organizers to plan adequate road support and closures. Sadly, this year's results will probably end up in next year's ride being limited or not run alltogether (pure conjecture on my part, I have no insider knowledge).
In other news my Vanilla is nearing completion. A bright, shining future on the horizon for me, and a winter of wonderful, wet training rides.
