That's a lot of climbing by ad hoc (4.00 / 1) #1 Mon Sep 18, 2006 at 11:55:20 AM EST
The middle 65 miles of mine had about 3,000 feet. Don't know about the first 30 or last 30. Probably about 1,000 each way.

What a softie, helping someone with a puncture! I thought racers were supposed to be hard asses.

BTW, registration for 2007 is open!

My legs are still on fire, hopefully an easy spin later on will get things loose.

I raced last weekend and knew I didn't have the legs to make a go of it, so I 'raced' at a moderate, sustainable pace.  Besides, this dude was flipping the fuck out and didn't have a pump or CO2.

I'm seriously considering the 550 since I got closed out of Iroman Wisconsin for next year.

There are about four or five speedsters who do it every year. Three guys from Connecticut and another guy from $somewhere (NY?). There's also a kid (who, I think, will be 18 next year) who sometimes joins them. They're very fast.

Then there are those of us who mosey.
