It was indeed worth it, but I still walked briefly twice. Floyd Landis cruised by me while I was walking on the final straight. I was leap-frogging with him all day, but of course he was just out cruising and enjoying the day while I was pedaling my guts out. I think I only saw 3 other steel bikes out there, and Landis' was one of them. A bit warmer this year than last year, but hella fun!
Looking forward to Breathless Agony next weekend.
