Wow, our times were virtually identical. Good job. Those winds were really incredible, weren't they. I've never ridden as fast on the way out, but the way back was just painful, wasn't it?

I'll second that on the winds. Looks like our times were pretty close as well, till the run. Then you took off. Great race.
