5000 feet of climbing in the first 50 miles. 1700 calories burned in the first 20 miles. Fred, you are no longer in Texas.
This was hands down the toughest 100 mile ride I've ever done. But I have to say the work I've done so far on technique and at MAF is paying off.
Now when I get back home I'll begin my first round of testing to move into a more race structured bit of training.
Happy Father's Day everyone!
