Primavera Century Felix Wong

Looking forward to seeing a close friend and her Merkur, I had extra motivation to go fast on this “short” 100-miler. Both up and down beautiful Calaveras Road (see pics above), I was flying on this day with near-perfect weather. Out of the house by 6:30a and back before 1:00p… not bad!
