“I qualified but all I really want to do is finish the race.”

Notes: There were two days of qualifications for the main race and it must have been hell. They were listing page after page of riders, but only the very few made it across to the final. It was scorching heat, bare asphalt for the largest part and the sun was sticking it each and every day. So, survival is a serious ambition.
