Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival
Anyways, more on that later this week... back to the race. Tom and arrived in Hayward Friday night and we quick stopped in Riverbook Bike and Ski! Tom dropped off a bike for Tim and we chatted it up with Steve, mostly jonesing on this years fat bike line up and getting all jacked up for winter riding (too soon i know!!). Owners Tim and Cindy really have an awesome shop in downtown Hayward. Basically it's an old library turned bad ass bike shop.
I had earned a spot in the 2nd gate with some recent race results and turns out everyone was there at like 7 am to set down their bikes and stake claim to a good spot. I had only brought one bike and since I was already late to the party I chose to warm up longer and worry less about my start spot. First world problems. Finally the cannon went BOOM!! and we were off!!
