Race Report: Catalina Gran Fondo

Catalina GF - ted at the start 600

We arrived on the Catalina Express, bikes and gear, ready for the 2015 Catalina Gran Fondo. It’s a mountain bike race that offers 3 different lengths, a 14 miler, a 41 miler and a 54 miler. Of course I opted for the 54, but after the recent rains, the organizers shaved off 9 miles of the course to protect the trails. My race wound up being 45.5 miles from start to finish with about 6742 feet of climbing.
