Michael Emde is a hard man. He just won the Furnace Creek 508, a UCI World Cup endurance event, for the second consecutive year. He came close to a course record and has now finished 3rd, 1st and 1st in 3 tries. I think he would have won in his first try as well but we had mechanical difficulties with the support vehicle (rider's must have the support vehicle with them and cannot continue riding if the vehicle is not with them).
He rules. You drool.
