Turned out to be a truly great day (for me).

Danny beat me again but no matter this time there was no mechanical failure of my bike (saddle) and I was able to ride a good pace. Finished 3rd of the 24 hour racers (drafting).. Danny finished second.

I clocked in 425.9 miles! Scorched that ground. Had I not stopped a few times and been treated to hand and neck massage I'd given Danny a run for second place! Yes but then again I'm not there really to win but to enjoy the event.

Unlike the brevets, the 24 hour race is very interesting because the nite section is on a closed race track so there is no worry about car traffic. This makes it so the event can be what you make of it... Ride fast and far, or take a break and check out those wierd recumbent bikes... It's all up to you... The pit crews are all polite and helpful and the food this year was fantastic! My wife made homemade spagetti and meatballs and there was hot soup and pizza around us all night... We even had a microwave on the track!

I used a topeak-moonshine-HID for lighting which has a 3 hour runtime... When the warning light came on I'd just make a pit stop, pull a warm battery from the charger, drop the dead one into the charger and head out again! The powe was right on the edge of my pit bay so I didnt even get off the bike!!! Well at least not for the batt changes Very Happy
