Congratulations to Saddlebred (Trish) who won her category!

The race was July 29 in Eatonton, just south of Monticello. Temperatures were brutal and "I fell apart at mile..." was the story of the day. My pace was 2 MPH slower than last year because of a mechanical issue and the heat.

The Red Clay Ramble is staple of the Georgia gravel scene and this is what it was like.

Thanks, Tim! It was a lot of fun! I hadn't done the race in a few years. I hope to be there next year if it works with my track racing schedule!

Another race report from a great writer who also happened to have taken third place in Grand Masters.

Quote:
After about four miles and a hand full of hills later a process of “reverse mitosis” began where clumps of backward pressured cyclists were forced to subdivide then simultaneously discard off the back like sinuous strands of rejected DNA that de-evolved and croaked. In short, the pack shattered and no matter how hard I sat on the back nobody could bridge us back up. For the next two hours, I surfed the back and mimicked a remora fish by glomming onto younger, faster guys. Did I mention I’m 64?

How hard I sat on the back Laughing
