Did you happen to see that speed skater? I was behind him for awhile cruising at close to 20mph!

Yes I did! It was a double take moment.

Can't say enough about 10 Wheels he helped me through the ride. About a mile past RS 6 i hit a bad spot in the road and was thrown into the ditch. It wasn't a crash but the jolt jammed my arm into my ribs. 10 wheels stayed with me while we waited for SAG that never came and then got me to R S 7 . I am interested to know if anyone else had an issue in that area.
I rested at R S 7 and finished with 62 miles at about 2:15 pm The paring lot was almost empty.

Sorry I missed him.

I liked the Open Start. We got going at 7 AM.

The open start was nice and I like how they broke it up into groups so the roads weren't completely congested with all 2500+ riders at one time. I left at about 6:40ish. It was a great ride, looking forward to next year.

I did the 100, we were lucky with the weather as it was overcast most of the time and the winds were reasonably light (except the run South on 362). This was my first real century (day one of the MS150 was only 94 for me) so at least I've got that milestone out of the way . I was very impressed with the organization, good signs/flaggers at turns and friendly folks at the rest stops. It's on the calendar for next year!
