A blustery, cool morning in Maryland. Strong winds blowing north/north east made the initial launch quick with stiff head winds on the return causing some pain. After a few hours the sun came out and the winds died down considerably. The rest of the day had lite wind.
My strategy was to push against the wind to mitigate loss in the first few hours, maintain and build during the middle, then push and crescendo a strong finish.
Rising tides caused some pooling in the roads which necessitated caution. However, drivers were polite, offered encouragement and cheered on each lap- how cool!
A big thank you to Inovalon, Bike Doctor, The Feed, Ketone IQ, Supersapiens, Princeton Carbonworks, Factor Bikes, Richardson Bike Fit and Infinity Bike Seat for their support. I couldn’t have done this without you.
