Keep the stuff in my bags to a minimum. Pack to much and kept changing my mind. Pack a towel.

Equipment box came off at bridge bump coming down the Callagham Valley. Stopped to piss a couple of times. Stop at Whistler to put stuff back in draft box.

Slow down at know pumps. Piss on the saddle. Eat a lot more nutrition on the bike.

What would you do differently?:

Just be a lot quicker. Have shoes ready.

Need to take more nutrition on the bike and during the run. Just ran of energy late in the run. Need to gut it out and get ugly next time.
