Sep-29: Rescue Rangers 201-km Perm

The object of today's ride was to ride with Bob as he attempted to rescue his R-series after he crashed our of the Taste of Carolina 1200 a month ago.

Bob's helpers on the day, aka, "Rescue Rangers", were:
  • MikeD (yes, for those of you non-locals, THAT MikeD), 
  • Mick H, 
  • me. 

We had wet roads half the day -- dry roads the other half.
But it never rained on us.
A few sprinkles, but nothing any rando worth their salt would notice.

We tried to protect Bob in the paceline,
Allowing him only one pull all day.

More than the above I'm not writing.
I'm hoping Bob will write something more insightful on his blog.

Oh, you might be wondering if Bob rescued his R-series.
You darn well better believe he did!  His series now at R-33.

Umm.  I'm going to have to have a talk with a certain route owner.
The official start time was 0730, Dean!
Not 0700.

None of us care about the time; all we care about is the credit; but ... .
[Edit, Oct-01-2012: 
Looks like Deaner paid off the "permanista" to cover-up his calculation error:
