Just made it to Tunis and dropped off Lastplace, Mike K, Dirk, and J-L at the airport. What a great group of guys, has been so much fun to be a part of for the last week! As Mike said, not one bummer in the bunch!
Lots of thoughts to share about the race, but there is plenty of time for that in the days to come. In the short term, I'll sum up that its a great event, the riding was both better and more challenging than I expected, and my result surprised me as much as anyone. I tried to ride "the speed of fun" for the whole time, and that worked out pretty well.
Not a moment went by that Wes was very far from any of our thoughts, after speaking with him Day 1, I think (and hope) the enjoyment I had from the event is a tribute to his own love for the sport.
Wild Man and I have one more night in Tunis, and fly home tomorrow. It's been a great adventure.
