That was an incredible day of races -- many thanks to the organizers, staff, volunteers and sponsors.
If anyone is wondering what it's like to race among 1,393 riders, it's a lot like this:
But only for the first lap or so. It was total chaos and insanely fun. Starting dead last in a group of 141, I managed to work my way up to 106. Another guy in my call-up group finished 15, so I guess starting position isn't everything.
