Come race time the sky opened up and the rain began. Sorry for the lack of action shots, next time we will bring more weatherproof camera equipment.
Jackie got top spot on the podium...not bad for receiving the bike the day before. Can't wait to get her on her Makulu. Mikey shared the 2:10 time slot with five others riders good for a 16th spot out of 41 Pro Men. Dante also having spent a few hours on a new bike pulled a 24th spot with a time of 2:13.09.
