I am back home safely after a wild race. Never did I dream I would finish a 12 hrs solo race AND give a pro (maybe export or sport, I am not sure) rider, Brian Archer, a run for his money. I tied him in laps for 3rd place but not time. We were tied at 5 laps and I was only 20 minutes behind when I went out for my 8th and final lap.
I just wanted to finish a 12 hour "ride" and I ended up racing for a 3rd place podium finish in the SS category. Not sure yet but looks like a top 20 (out of 40 riders) 12 hour solo overall.

Close to 90miles of riding, over 11 hours of saddle/walking time, over 12,000 feet of climbing. I need a month's rest now. See you all.
