Tuesday: Missed check in for our flight by 2 minutes... had to buy new tickets and leave Wednesday. I recommend not flying Air france!
Wednesday: Departed, had to pay $300 for each bike to fly internationally! I recommend not flying Delta!
Thursday: Arrived in Milan, luggage didn't though. Missing bike, and clothes for Kristina and Ian and the car seat. Waited in the airport for 6 hours for a ride to Finale.
Friday: slept through breakfast. Found out our luggage showed up to the airport, but they wouldn't deliver it until Saturday. Spirits not doing so good ; ( Gave up and went to the beach and ate gelato. Spirits getting better ; )
Saturday: Race day, Got my bike at about 10:00, built it, and did a lap on the course before the start.
The race: 24 hour format, we had a 6 man Singlespeed team. of the 24 hours we lead all but about 20 seconds. Team NASA/Niner won the overall with the largest margin of victory in the 11 year history of the race(so I was told) with more that a two lap lead.
Sunday: Won the race, enjoyed the party and waited for a ride to town(I thought Humboldt time was slow). Pizza, Pizza, Gelato, sleep.
The team on the stage, Winners overall, and Solo Female!
