Didn't get passed, except by speedo-guy after I passed him, then I left him behind after saying didn't our bikes dance @ Heritage Park?

This was my best leg today! :-)
What would you do differently?:

Ride a $5,000 bike, so the people on $5,000 bikes wouldn't feel so bad after I pass them!

1st try @ removing feet from shoes and riding atop shoes before the transition, it went great!
