Holy hell a very hard way to ride a very hard 112 miles! Completely abandoned the "race within yourself" plan and got caught up in hammering with the uber bikers! Paid for it!

    That's cause you are an "uber biker" in my book. Congrats on a great race. Hope to see you do it again, but if you stick with other races I totally understand. I've never done a full Ironman myself.
