    I'm not one of the top riders. I'll be doing good to finish the CC in under 9 hours. But I'll finish. Here is what I've learned from the past two years:

    Don't stop. If you need to get off the bike, walk. Keep moving.

    If you're like me, you haven't trained like you would have liked. Work and life's other distractions everybody has. BUT believe you can do it. Don't give in to your negative thoughts and self-doubts. These are your enemies. You earn your Coup Feather by facing your enemy, touching your enemy, and riding away victorious!

    Good luck. Enjoy the day.

    I had zero wait - outside - not cold. Loaded the bike too. The finishing times are so spread out and so many people self-shuttle I don't expect problems.
