I have competed in this race for 3 years. This is usually a great race! You get a medal and nice shirt and everyone is very nice. This year was a different experience for me. I had an issue on the bike course and was unable to finish. I was quite upset and I think the incident could have been handled much differently. I have been to many other races where the amount of support was incredible if there was an issue, especially on the bike. That was not the case for this race. I am not sure I will go back to this race.
