TwentyFour12: Snap! - 24hr Solo becomes 6hr Solo

TwentyFour12 was a mixed and, ultimately, disappointing weekend for me. I held the lead in 24hr solo for a while, mixed it with the leaders from the start, but lasted barely 6hrs before mechanical failure forced me to retire while racing at the front.

It was a successful experiment in self pitting, showed me that if I focus I can compete right at the front, but that I need to be super disciplined and make sure I am properly prepared to go on to succeed.
My enduring (unhappy) memory from TwentyFour12 2010
