This was my first 12 hour race and what an experience. I didn't know how the race would go until it started but after the first few hours I knew i needed to get as much distance in the first 4 hours away from my competitors if I wanted to win. I did put in a massive effort in the wind to make that happen and the next 8 hours I rode steady, being able to finish 8 miles over the next competitor. Great first ultra race!!!
