Turning right on Moots Run, the leaders hit the corner hard and were sprinting just as us at the back reached the corner and that was that. I formed up with Gus, Lori, Philippe and soon we pulled in another guy whose name I have forgotten. Prior to the Thresher Street climb, we discussed regrouping at the top so we could work together for the return. We did so although the new guy was pretty far back and we decided he would get caught up by the A group so we continued on what was a good route. Left on Dry Creek, right on Battee, left on Hardscrabble, right on RV Road, then Jug and then we were reeled in my Katherine, Kristian, Mick, the guy we picked up prior to Thresher who I think was a little annoyed we did not wait for him and 2-3 others. We rode in, finishing with 41 miles and a 21mph average. Not sure how the front group finished. A very fun time on the bike with good people.
Now, that unfortunate hacking incident to my blog during which insane comments were made about me going out and pulling away from Hendra, Marty, Jon, etc... Actually, I did pull away from Billy Bob, Bobby Jo and Jimmy Dean so I felt good about that. I also saw Grand Poobah riding with Julia and will interrogate him soon to determine if he had any part in the hack attack or should I just chalk it up to the Chinese military branch.
