Old Pueblo was mine this year :-)

16 laps, 24 hours and 49 mins, 240 miles. I was peaked and hungry, hit every goal I set out for the event and basically crushed it - dam that was some fun!!! Here's the goals I had:

  1. Start strong and finish fast.
  2. Stay on task and motivated 3am - 6am.
  3. Complete 16 laps.
  4. Be the fastest solo lady.
  5. Finish in the top 5 overall. I did that. I would have been 3rd in the men's solo field!!!

Huge kudos go out to all of my support crew - hubby Steve who ran around like a nut getting me everything I wanted the entire race, Damien who wrenched my bikes back into perfection every time I trashed them, to Anna for overseeing everything was done well, to the kids for being great troupers, to Dave for being there on the course to chase and to Dixie and Eric for playing with my kids while I was pedaling. I bow to them and call 24-hour solo racing a team event. Having done one unsupported and now one supported I can tell you no support will cost you three laps minimum.

I'll post more info, my race power file, training data and some photos later but right now I'm crawling back into the pain cave - smiling though :-)

Results will be posted at some point.

Great job Lynda! That course was a lot of fun to ride, and you tore it up. Again, great job you should be very proud of your results. Now get recovered and ready to do it again :D

Excellent execution!! After seeing you race at Bootleg there wasn't any question in my mind that you'd smoke'em at OP. I can't wait to see those last lap times.

What an amazing performance; finishing the last laps that strong is a true testament to your superior fitness!
