Race reports

Near the end of the first lap, my journalistic training had alerted me to the fact that yes, the event was aptly named. I was indeed … hurtin’.

But will I be signing up for next year’s race? In a heartbeat.

With hundreds of riders, completing countless laps, over the eight hours, the cheering and cowbells never stopped. Not just the cheering, the entertainment too, including the costumed cheer squad at aid station one.
