I have no idea how you finished over 50 miles with your rim bent the way it was! That was incredible Jerry. You should be more than proud of yourself. 

It was a tough ride and you did it in more than respectable time. As always, it was fun getting to hang with you after the race!!

P.S. Your Pink Crocs are on order
