Somewhere around the one-third or halfway point, I realized that I was hitting the contrôles with about 2 hours to spare, so I used that to set my pace for the rest of the way.
I've done a few centuries and (2) 200k's so far. I plan to ride 2 more brevets this year, a 200 and 300. Next year I will attempt an entire SR series.. and then ideally again in 2023. I feel like the "not-knowing" factor counts as a huge Pro on the 90-hour start time argument.
