I really hate to see someone go down, also knowing it was from a blown tire rather than operator error, and SO close to the end!
How is our fellow riders that went down? My standard joke to you all in our races is that, our age (45-60+) we all have the same goal, to;
"go to work Monday without any broken bones!"
Also, my sadness to the racer who flatted at the base of the final climb, who shouted, "Not now! . . . "Not now!" So darn close, all that effort!
