First off, let me say thanks to everyone who planned / supported, etc Froze Toes! I had a great time, looked like there was a great turnout, free pizza, sunny skies, what more could you ask for? Thanks for providing us with an opportunity to get outside and ride / compete again after a LONG and COLD winter.
Unfortunately for me, as for a handful of others, my race was stopped short with a flat. I've been lucky enough that this was the first road race I've ever flatted in. I was surprised though when the wheel truck following our group drove right past me and others that had flatted. I had spare wheels in the truck, as did others....so I guess my question is, is that normal? We were 4 miles from the finish when I flatted, so I was thinking that maybe that was close enough to the finish that they were obligated to stay with the peleton?
No biggie either way, just wondering if this experience was normal. My race was obviously over, but it would have been nice to finish.
