Hincapie Gran Fondo Greenville was a race I registered for at the last minute. I had surgery in May and was expected to recover for 6-8 months before I would be ready to increase my intensity or efforts on a race course. I decided to go to Greenville to see how I felt on my bike for a 50 mile (Medio distance) road race with almost 4000 feet of climbing. I took it easy and made a few stops to regroup with friends and I am happy to say that even with pit stops, it was an amazing (albeit wet) day with great results only 5 months post surgery. Looks like I am ready to get to it for 2019!
