    Made the bike cut off with a few minutes to spare (8hr 26 min. bike time) now just a full marathon in the race chair and he's done.

    Ricky finished yesterday with a total time of 13 hrs. and 21 min. About an hour longer that he was hoping for but he said the course was a lot more hilly than he anticipated. Long day...I can't remember much I've done for 13 hr's straight...Proud of him
