Mike Cotty completed the 2009 Race Across The Alps on Saturday June 20. The event featured 526 km of riding with roughly 13,000 m of climbing. After the race Mike reports:
"That was one crazy race! Had everything. Snow storms, rain, sunshine. Insane.
10th overall. Solid ride from start to finish. Brake pads were perfect!
I had two bikes but I only used the climbing bike with Cosmic Carbone and SwissStop pads as there was no need to change. So, with all that descending (with all the grit and rain) I wore the front pads out by half so a pretty amazing wear rate really!
Long drive home. 5am start tomorrow! Nothing like a bit of good recovery! Ha!
Thanks for your support.
