I want to make sure to thank my lovely wife Dáša and my son Ian for their support during the preparation for the race and cheering during the race. Without them I would have never completed this challenging race. I can promise that for the next several weeks I'll not be away on Saturday and Sunday mornings as much as I was during the training. For a while I'm not planning any long rides or long runs. And here they are - the biggest heroes of Saturday's race.
