Course: tough course for me I was not ready for the hills. Also the cable broke for shifting my big ring, thank goodness it was stuck on the smaller of the 2 otherwise it would have been the end of the race I believe. This prevented me from pushing down hill, once I hit "terminal velocity" at about 25 MPH gravity took over and sometimes I was able to hit 35 to 38 however as I bottomed out there was no way to sustain this speed without that larger gear.
