This was my first race of 2015. True Grit Epic, St George Utah, Mar 14. It was brutal. Only the fast dudes and chicas showed up. I have no shame in saying that I had my ass handed to me across the board. Competition, tech riding, heat, amungst other things. I even put a old Reba shock fork (borrowed from a friends parts pile) on last last last minute because almost 100% Gerry Pflug converted his Specialized Epic to SS for this race in 2014. My thoughts were this "Gerry is wise, I may take from his experience and rock the shock fork for this one." The race still felt like I was riding rigid, crazy.
