For now I just want to assure you and am more than satisfied with my 12+ hour finish. I couldn't have done better given the circumstances, and I rode as hard as I could without ever giving up or slacking off.
In the photo Mandy took of me coming across the red carpet I have a huge grin on my face. That look says it all to me.
I've also got an interesting surprise to share. More on that in a couple of days.
