People from all over the state showed up and quite a few from out of state including Washington DC, New York, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts!
I ended up working registration and did not get on the bike until 11:30! It didn't leave me a lot of time to ride since lunch due to arrive at noon. I wasn't feeling it either, mainly due to the exhausting ride setting up the course and the lack of sleep at the campground due to the weather. I went out and did a quick 4 miles on the carriage roads on the Kona since my tubeless tires were still failing. I was wishing for the fixie but took what I could get.
