I appreciate the offer... I will not hesitate should the opportunity arise.

I fell off drastically, and began to appreciate the earlier comments like "don't kid yourself, this race is for real"... :0 Definitely different that what we get in MI (mountains (not hills) and crazy mis-shaped rocks).

I bet you'd knock off at least an hour next time. Getting the right pacing for the first 8 miles takes some patience. It's almost all uphill even though a lot of it seems flat. Riding those 8 miles in the opposite direction is incredibly fast.
It amazes me how many fast guys come out of the woodwork on good weather days. There was some serious speed there Saturday.
Hope you can make it down next year. Bring a couple of friends with you. They won't believe you until they experience it themselves!

We finished the 3x34 challenge on our mtb tandem. Never been so proud of a damn belt buckle! Great trail conditions - we were 15 minutes faster than February - 5:16.

I've bumped into you two tandem nuts more than a few times, I know that you hear it a lot but I'll say it anyway, I have no idea how you do it. Major props and congrats.
