Now remember you have some tough riding coming up so don’t give up. It’s almost over. You are way ahead of your last year’s time and doing very well. You are strong and you can do this. To the crew, this is where Dave might get a little hard to get along with. Be strong for him and just ignore his comments. They are not running you in circles Dave keep peddling!!! Dave, we love you and are so proud of you. Dave’s crew thanks every so much for everything you have done this past week and a half. YOU GUYS CAN DO IT!!!
