Lumberjack 100

Jersey goes open and its go time. 3 33mile laps was perfect even if my gear choice was not. I mistakenly rode only the first 5 miles of the course, which was the hardest and hilliest of the race, after that it just flattened out, but I had a nice gear to spin the rest of the day and become one with the woods. This 100 mile stuff is tough because I still haven't wrapped my head around the fact that by the time I am warmed up its over. Most of my racing the last few years has been 12 hour events so by the time I hit 5-6 hours I am almost done. I looked at my times and this was confirmed with a 1:40 first 1:45 second and 1:39 last lap. Kids at 66 miles I took off, but game over at the end. I finished 11th well outside of my goal of top 5, which after Cohutta was completely doable. I ran a 32-18 and was spun out on this course so if its the same next year I will be putting in a 16 or 17 for sure.
Mark my mechanic, making some brake adjustments.
Michiganopoly don't land on Flint.
Scott and Mark, this is 1am in the Morning! We made Lake crossing in the middle of the night, slept a few hours then went into town in the morning for a early breakfast.

Thee SS Badger, this thing runs on Coal!
