10th Toss: 65 Miles: Bourbon Exit

The weather was great and they had a soft tailwind today. We took them 5 miles short of the 70 mile point.

Release time was 9:15am and arrival at 10:30am; that is 1525 YPM (52 miles an hour)!  -They were already in the loft when I got back, so it was actually a bit quicker.

The season opener is in 2 weekend we go 85 and the final 100 mile trainer. The first race is 125 miles.
