Oh my gosh.
I'll keep this short, sweet, and to the point, because it's not the race report. I've got 15 minutes of video to look at and edit before I post the race report.
But I will say that this race is one of the hardest things I've ever done. Which is crazy, because the whole thing is over in 30 minutes. But it possibly hurt worse than anything else in the entire universe, with the possible exception of recovery from certain kinds of surgery. It absolutely drained me, and I felt like puking the whole time, and I was thinking as I rode, "Brett, if you try to talk me into doing anything new with you ever again, I will kill you."
And I can't wait to do it again.
