AND - just glued on my sew-ups so I figured it would be a fun ride on my vintage Eddy Merckx.
Nice organization, nice route, nice cause. It was a little windy but not at all bad for the Livermore area. We did feel a few raindrops.
We got a little bit of a late start due to a registration issue, so for a while, we were the last riders on the course. We met support rider Mike who was kind of sweeping the course along with the SAG vehicle. Mike had a custom Steve Rex; he and I swapped stories about riding in the good old days when steel bikes and sew-ups were the norm.
Vladi did great - I coached him a little on pacing, and straightened out some misconceptions he had about gearing, and he put out a good effort.
|I talked to the guy who owns this business - he had a pretty cool setup.|
