Lynda and I decided to do RimRide together – as in stay together during the race. At the last minute we decided to go SS too. 32.19 for me, 34.20 for her. How’d it go? Well…beyond all expectations. We didn’t expect to be in the mix – we actually weren’t planning on putting down a race effort, more of a long SS training day.
Conditions were perfect. The views are phenomenal on this route – something we didn’t see last year in the wet weather. And…we stayed on course for the most part :) For much of the day it was a threesome with Jeff, and also appearances by Aaron Potts, Plesko, Marko and a few others…Jeff had a mechanical towards the end and we left him for dead.
There was nobody else in front of us. No gearies caught us on the potash road spin coming back. We won RimRide together! On a SS!!
10:23 – only 23 min longer than my time last year and this route is longer with the new trails. Looks like her rimride obsession paid off.
We were both running our power taps too…more data!
Such a killer power date from all angles.
Stay tuned for a pictorial.
