|Polka dot nails my pre race prep!|
|At the start ...Ontario Convention center CA|
|A few casualties on one of the SAFEST roads on the ride, always sad to see this.|
I had also sprayed the insoles of my cycling shoes with Kool n Fit spray which I love and keeps my feet nice n cool too!
And looked good in my neon yellow Rudy Projects!
To keep cycling and only stop at three of the possible 8 aid stations...the one before the climb at Sierra Blvd, before the GMR climb, then the one supported by California Tri so I could see friends there and the one by INCYCLE before the Baldy climb!
oh and keep smiling!

The downhill proved extremely challenging and I did have a few major mechanical s, but the support from the organization of Pacific Sports was amazing and I was well looked after.
12,146 ft of climbing!!
100 miles in total.
GMR climb 54:01:95 (in 2011 56:17:55)
Baldy climb 54:33:70 (in 2011 58:10:14)
KOM total 1:48:35: extremely happy as in 2011 it was 1:54:28 !!
Overall I was 9th female in the King of the Mountain Challenge and 2nd in the 45-49 AG.
In 2011 I was 494th this year I was 349th! Very proud of myself.
I finished in around the same time at the ski lifts as I did last year and there was extra mileage from Ontario. I must be doing something right!
