Cohutta 100

2011 Hundo #25

Coming from Michigan where winter wont quit this year, today's Cohutta 100 weather was spectacular! Blue skies, 80 degrees, and dry dirt under the wheels felt awesome.

The Race: I might need to check my clock on my bike computer. The race started at 6:56 by my clock and I'd only arrived about a minute before, whew. Pace seemed way higher to me this year rolling from the start and I quickly felt like my tires were flat. It took a while but I finally found my groove by about mile 20 and from there I felt pretty good. I ended up rolling with Kuhncapi for about 35 miles which was nice. Greg fell off the lead group with flatting rear tire . He actually ended up winning an award for the most flat tires on the day. Of course, by the end, everyone gets tired and so that finish line looked glorious. I ended up 3rd in Masters behind Doug Andrews from California and my Trek 29er Crew teammate Roger Masse. Hopefully I ride closer to these guys at my next NUE race. I was pretty far off today.

Fancy Number Plates!

The Superfly performed flawlessly today.

Today I found my favorite taillight which was lost/broken off in a crash on thanksgiving, 150 days ago. I feel a lot better now about lending my bike to Shawn Meredith for the thanksgiving day ride. :-)
