The race is over. I hated watching the Elite race. For two reasons. The course wasn’t that spectator friendly, so it was frustrating not being able to see the moves. And two, I wasn’t racing.

Tim Johnson started riding conservative on the last lap he had such a lead.  The course was changing up and getting slick in the last afternoon hours.

Katie Compton lead from start to finish.  Nothing new there.

Catherine and Laura Van Gilder.  Laura was riding great on a course that didn't suit her.  She fell with a 1/3 of a lap to go and lost her shit.  She regrouped to finish 5th and the last podium slot.  Super race.

The primal drum beat responated through the course.  It drove the competitors much the same as the beer wagon in the background.
