Chris in Chicago took his brand new Song to #2 at 12 hours of New Fane
He and the winner, as the story is told, lapped the field, other than the winning 4 person team. Fast!
Chris rode his bike for all of a week, only once on dirt, before lining up for this race. Note the World Bicycle Relief color scheme. Congrats to Brad Majors, too, on his strong 3rd place finish. (on right)
Here, an excerpt from his message to us after the race- printed with his permission:
Hey Brendan – got my first real taste of Song love yesterday – WOW!!! 12 hours at Northern Kettle, took 2nd, only guy on the lead lap w/ the winner. We lapped *everyone* except one 4-man team!!!! The bike was awesome, SO fast, so smooth – 12 hours and I felt great even at the end!
Pics and writeup to come. THANK YOU!!!!
This sort of stuff is the real inspiration to build bikes. Check out his write up for more details on his Song experience.
UPDATE: Chris wrote a very thorough review of his bike- read it here.
