Saturday, April 10: The Desert Classic, sponsored by the Arizona Bicycle Club. 108 miles (it was supposed to be 104 miles, and you didn't learn that it was 108 miles until after you'd already done 104) in 5:59:45. Given that there wasn't any traffic control and far fewer people to work with on the course, I'm thinking that time may be equivalent to an El Tour de Tucson time. We'll see in November.
The Desert Classic is so laid-back, there's no finish line. You make it back to the parking lot, put your bike in your car, then go to lunch. In any case, my best time ever for a century.
