gRAND VIEW FIREHOUSE 50 - INDIVIDUAL TIME TRIAL
August 5th in Grand View WI
Last year Jeff Abitz ran across the same finish line with a flat rear tyre.
This year he returned for another go at the 50 Mile Individual Time Trial.
With about 20 miles to go he noticed his front tyre steadily losing air,
but nursed it onward, only to push his luck in the last corner.
I'll spare you the bloody details. Let's just say running across the finish line of this event may be becoming his "trademark" move.
Still, not a bad result.
