If the field was all together at the beginning of the final climb, I might reasonably expect to work into a top twenty finish with a heroic effort, but I knew all things equal, I'd have no, none, zero chance of beating all the nation's best climbers in my age group to win on this course.

My Journey began in April 2014 when I got a call from one of the coaches with TeamUSA Para-cycling informing of a Time Trail being held at the Chula Vista OTC. This TT would be a selection event for World Cup 1 to be held in Italy and my first opportunity to show the TeamUSA staff what I can do. The timing of this event was perfect for me as I was already in California for the San Dimas Stage race and Red Lands.

I drove up to Milwaukee with my good buddy Lee Wise on the Friday and day before the race. We drove to the course to pick up our packets, drop off our bikes, and after Lee went with his parents I did a bike and run to stretch the legs from the seven hour car ride. It could have been six but I fell asleep in the passenger seat, so I guess that told Lee he should ignore my prior request to drive around Chicago and not through it on a Friday afternoon. Should have listened.

24 hours, 1,440 minutes, 86,400 seconds, 19,000 feet of climbing, and 250 miles are all part of my 24 hour solo single speed U.S. National Championship race. There were over 500 men and women signed up for this final 24 Hour U.S. National Championship race in Gallup NM, with 30 of the best single speed racers in the U.S. in my race. The course consisted of 19.3 mile laps with over 1,500 feet of climbing each lap.

To this date, The Wildflower Triathlon has been the hardest and funniest Olympic distance race I have competed in. The race was tough, but I am glad I got to enjoy it with my USMES teammates. Our triathlon director and athlete, Kathy Rakel, did a great job of ensuring we had a well-coordinated, stress free race.
