The race at Bruxelles was painful, and often sloggy and dirty, and for half a lap I was looking and feeling great. Unfortunately there were still 2 and half laps to go. I faded quickly and ended up finishing DFL. I was thinking of excuses to quit during lap 2 but knew a DNF would not sit right so I soldiered on for the final lap. I sucked. But for some reason I was still grinning 10 hours after the race ended. Nowhere to go but up I suppose. Paul K joined me and he kicked A with a first place finish in Citizen. ABES have won the citizen title every year this race has taken place! Paul’s group started 3 minutes after I did and he passed me about 8 km’s into the race. Bruxelles was his sort of race. Attaboy DB. The town (maybe 25 houses?) had a hall where race ceremonies, food, and prizes were divied. It was nice to see familiar MCA faces again. Great race Olympia. JS
