This was my first Dirty Kanza race after many years of seeing it pass through my hometown of Council Grove and wishing I was part of it. I've lived in the Flint Hills for almost three decades and I was as astonished as anyone by the landscapes we crossed. I fared pretty well despite some intense cramping not even halfway through the race, and managed a good balance of riding a competitive pace yet taking in all of the scenery. Next year it's time to be a big boy and ride up front.
