The reporter guy was hanging out by the final check-in when I got there.
He came up and asked me how it was; I sort of mumbled something as my brain was feeling fried at the time and nothing intelligent was forthcoming.

He didn't ask me anything else because I obviously wasn't going to be quote-worthy!

Sorry I missed you guys. I had to go to a memorial service at 2PM, so I did the 100k starting at 6:30 PM, and so had the roads to myself all day!

Came back to the festival at around 5PM (with the baby!), and chatted with Don P. (the organizer) and jbay and Pamela, but didn't see anyone else.

What a beautiful day it was!

A little mis-quoted but he is right that last year's 170k was the "hardest ride I've ever done..". The 100k is a great ride and this year's event was superb. The reporter corralled dave and me for about 15 minutes.
