Finishing first in a state and on a course I thought I never stood a chance at winning on. I was given some hope last year when I took 3rd, still 5+ minutes off the lead time. This year was total roll reversal as I won by 8+ minutes. The fastest overall expert time. One of the biggest leads I've EVER won by. 1600ft of climbing per lap and 3 and a half laps for over 5600ft of climbing in 21+ miles. Looks like I'll be stumbling into the top 3 overall for 2009.
