Wild Card's own Neil Fortner put on another  great  Ill Kanza Grand Fondo. This year it was USAC, so Karl officiated for us.

Wild Card Racers had an especially good day, check out the info and  podium pics below. We enjoyed lots of Tryptich beer after the race- I was glad I only did 46 miles and got the beer sooner.

Martin’s report. The short: Warm-up race for the Tunnel Hill 100 ultrarun in November. 11:36 with a swim faster than in 2014, with no swim training for 2 years. Despite a 25 mph rainstorm at the end of the bike, Louisville is more pleasant in October than August!
