The 508 -Race Recap

The 508 -Race Recap

It’s been 2 weeks since the end of the race. I’ve had time to think that I want to do the race again, maybe solo, maybe do the 308 solo.

No, my memory isn’t that bad, I was just putting everything I had into the pedals that I think my brain shut down. So, I’ll try and hit on everything that I remember about the race.   I felt nervous as I did before every race and lined up in the top quarter of the field. Everyone took off and a group of…
