Race what you brought... GAS ON
on that note, I was looking back at the B1K thread during the day today, but I failed to note in thread the DNF B1K issue. The down side to 'chat' is it doesn't archive. I just read thru my text's to remember what the DNF issue was.
SImple answer, no mechanical, just stuck so many times the win was out of the question.
P1 provisionally. Lots of TT's yet to run.

Qualifying is SO important. As you see in the slingshot video its one thing to catch someone, its a whole other thing to pass them. Being trouble free for the first 100 miles. is very important. Looking forward to Saturday.
