We had a typical number of racers show up for a not so typical day in July. The weather was near perfect. Upper 70's with a blue puffy cloud sky and some wind to add challenge. Nothing remarkable happened; no record breaking times or mishaps. We did have one Junior (Anthony Hamm) traveling from Ottumwa. This was his first race ever! Well Done! We had another Junior (Willie Oxley) who rode in the Men's category. Great job Willie passing your minute person, which was me! We always have a great showing of Men Masters. As one remarked "this could be called the old mans race." And why not? Except for the fact that there are always a few of us women racers who pin the number on and test their strength and stamina. I might add that riding my single non-aero bike gives me respect for all who give this their best shot.
Thanks for showing up to race on the beautiful July evening!
