We are very happy about our fleche ride this weekend. Team Velo Espresso Gelato, with our captain Lane Giardina leading me, MG and Mike Ross, made its way about a 234-mile course without incident.
We encountered lots of headwinds yesterday on the first half, and made up for it with lots of tailwinds on the second half. We laughed a lot and ate way too much, and encountered the nicest people at our controls.
We really enjoyed seeing all the teams at the Key Bridge Marriott this morning in Arlington. Brunch made for a satisfying payoff after a long night’s ride in the cold.
All in all, good memories!
Time to get some sleep!
