After 4 states and 830 miles on the road I made it down to DSG in Fayetteville TN. I rolled in around noon on Friday, got checked in, and started to set up my pit. There wasn't too many riders at the venue yet, but I did run into the one and only Kerkove who was doing some product pimpage for Egron. I ment to stop over during the demo and give the world famous grips a trial run to see if they make my hands happy, but went out to eat and never made it over. I also pre-rode the course and loved it!! 10.5 miles of sweet climbs and decents. 1500 feet of climbing per lap made for a relentless ride. I rode real easy on that lap so I knew the layout and I turned in a lap time of 1 hour and 12 min, which I would use as a pace indicator for the next morning.
I got up aturday morning and felt great race morning and was looking forward to a day on the bike. I got the rest of my things organized and did some last minute tweaking on my ride, got a warmup in, and then got ready for the 8:00 start time.
My ride looks ready to rock before the start
