DNF P#148 @ 166 km
This is Barry's check in message following a rare (for him) permanent DNF. I thought other riders would be interested. Barry agreed to let me put it in the newsletter. [EF]
I had a little incident on this one but nothing serious and nothing broken.
I had just signed in at the Port Coquitlam control all ready to push off for the last stretch when the freehub body, I believe, didn't engage with the prawls causing the crank arm to spin suddenly, which caused me to lose my balance and fall over hitting the ground.
I tried to continue for a bit but soon realised it's better to come back another day and fight again so I abandoned at Prairie and Shaugnessy. The pain was building up and I would not have been
able to slam the brakes on hard if I had to.
Otherwise the ride was going really well and I was heading for perhaps just inside of 10 hours. I rode on October 31.
Until the next one.
