Don't even read it
No good news from the race. Short summary - warning - it might be boring if you read the blog more often, because it's pretty much like the last couple of race reports:
--> ride 4 hours
--> then all of a sudden start to feel bad
--> puke out everything I had to eat/drink since the start of the race
--> wrap myself in blankets to control the cold shivers (at 80 F ambient)
--> take a one hour break/nap
--> go out for another lap
--> feels like someone drained all the engergy from my legs
--> I must also look bad, one medic at an aid-station yells at my "Are you OK?" when I ride by
--> it's not fun any more
--> pack up the bus and drive home
And to top it all off:
--> Just when I parked the Vanagon in front of the house a cooling line blew up.
I'm really mad, I prepped so well for the event, felt great and was really looking forward to kick some ass, and then my systems shuts down - again. I think I'm done racing for a while....
