The race format and execution were excellent and I am really hoping to make it an annual tradition ... hats off to Mangled Momentum for organizing a superb inaugural race.

The road surface was 90% smooth-as-glass and maybe 10% teeth-chattering rough. The long uphills and downhills seemed daunting, at first, but were not so difficult as to make this impossible for beginning skaters. Just don't expect any PR's if you don't regularly train the hills.

The weather was perfect - sunny and 70's - and just as importantly, traffic control by Oro Valley PD was outstanding.

For those of you on the fence, Oro Valley/Tucson is a very bike/skate-friendly town, with exceptionally wide bike lanes and miles upon miles of fresh asphalt. If Breanna decides to organize a second year, please set aside time/funds for this race -- you will not be disappointed !!!
