|In the lead on lap 1|
I had noticed my rear tire was a little soft at the start and it got lower as the race went on, but I was not sure about stopping to fill it as Ian was right on my tail. I finished with probably 15psi - a close call.
|Hanging on through the last lap|
On the last lap, I ran into a lot of lapped traffic and it slowed me down a bit. I usually try to be as polite as possible in passing and my experience has been that works the best to get around people. I lost some time, but not a lot. I probably lost more time trying to avoid the tiny bunny who hopped onto the middle of the trail just as I was rounding a downhill switchback (the bunny hopped out just after I'd finished avoiding a turtle who decided to take shelter in the middle of the trail)...
|A lot of dust breathed in today!|
