On Saturday, March 28th, Mike participated, with about 300 other riders, in the Barry-Roubaix Killer Gravel Road Race. The course was a grueling 31 miles of HILLY gravel roads wrapping around Gun Lake in Yankee Springs - perfect conditions for Mike's Specialized TriCross bike. These types of races always seem to bring out the most interesting crowd, mostly the laid-back 'burly' type; gotta love it! The morning was gorgeous and scenery breathtaking, too - I was able to go for a run while he was on his bike and explore the trails and woods - it was awesome!

Mike finished 2nd in his age group with a time of 1:57:51 hr. I'm SO proud of him! We celebrated in the lodge afterwards with a fine post-race cuisine of Chili and Founders Beer. Yummmm!
