There was a lot of loose stuff through the day. One buddy got a pic of the road grater working the route ... very nice of the locals to give us freshly grated gravel! I didn't think he road were a lot worse than last year. But the part I remember being very sandy - roughly mile 25, riding it in the dead of the night - was flooded this year, so we were walking that section of road.

The high temps in the afternoon, blocked up gut, and knee pain were slowing me down. Overall, it was a great day, I got in just before 7:00, nearly 2 hours faster than last year.
