Saturday evening

The run tonight was slower than the run yesterday. Update will follow.

We went to The Owl for something to eat and the prize giving ceremony, and also for all the fun we had. We all got a medal for participating in the race, either in the speed runs or in the drag race. It was time to say goodbye to a lot of people.

It was late when we got back to the hotel, where we had to put Sjaaks bike back together again. It took some time, so it was around 1.30 h before we could all go to sleep. Sjaak is driving along a bit with Bram and Annette Wielemaker in their camper, and will cycle some more. Sjaak is going to enjoy cycling in Amerika for a bit longer.

We had a lot of fun. We hope to see everybody again next time.
