I had promised prior to the start there would be a couple of regroups along the route but all the cooperation I could get was a short lived soft pedaling between mountain bottom and #13 on Hayes. After that it was full bore to Granview and then the force of that southwest wind began to have an impact as some dropage occurred until we arrived at Gale Road. A tractor pulling a large disc attachment was going south on Gale while we were stopped. Our front two thought we were to turn left rather than right so were waiting for the tractor to pass. The tractor then began a left turn. There is nothing like a disc implement approaching oneself that focuses the mind and I kind of shrieked "GO!!!!!" as the farmer rained F-bombs on us. Like Gus said, the guy is probably working 20 hour days and lacking patience.
We were down to about 15 people and the ensuing York climbs and wind fighting shrank our number to 12 by the time we pulled into New Albany with 45 miles and a 21.2 average.
