Brass Cojones

As I sit inside the crows nest at the Howard Wood/Dakota Relays track meet with a space heater on, my mind drifts to Snakebite as he attempts to ride the first two legs (Sioux Falls to Mitchell and then on to Chamberlain) today. Normally a decent feat, but today, a feat that will test the mettle of any man. Right now, at 12:55pm it is 48 degrees and the wind is NW at 24mph. I can only imagine what it was like at 5:30 am, Snakebite's scheduled time of departure.

I also noticed that CycleSD is planning on meeting Snakebite at Mitchell and ride with him to Chamberlian. I'll give him the "aluminum" cojones award for this feat. Not ideal conditions. Tomorrow is supposed to be 72 and the wind is supposed to be out of the SW so it should be a side/helpful wind on the way back. Better conditions as long as they survive today. Good luck boys!

We made it - barely. The ride coming back (Sunday) had a tailwind all the way. That made up for a lot.

Noticed when we was out today that the wind was out of the West more than any direction. You deserved it after yesterday!
