  1. Hello Cog'ers, I started a new thread on Riding Gravel Forum. Feel free to share you rides and training tips. Thanks!

  2. I think I need to apologize, I finished the course but after the time cut of (6:40pm) and didn't even think of calling/texting the DNF number. Sorry if that was a faux pas.

    The course and whole time was amazing. Brutal but rewarding.
