Kentucky Camp Epic Marathon Race

Kentucky Camp Epic Marathon Race report by Beto Villegas

Good turnout today, 30 showed up for this one.  Scott Morris and I opened a gap from the rest of the field on the first major climb.  I decided not to push the pace and save my legs for the long windy road ahead.  But, the pace soon picked up after I attacked on the first downhill section and was able to open a small gap.  I put the pressure on the chasers until I made an unplanned stop at the Kentucky Camp monument to top off my water bottles.  I pulled out of the town site still in the lead somehow.   I was already starting to feel dehydrated and my stomach was not feeling right.  I pressed until I felt a bonk coming on and hiked my bike up some steep switchbacks, which was also a good time to refuel anyways.  I refueled, hydrated and suffered like a dog for the top spot, just 5 minutes in front of second place.
