Jacques Brunswick Iron Man Gran Fondo, Lakeville, MN
In the course of several hours, on a 68-mile course, Jacques experienced  wind that averaged 25 mph, with gusts to 35mph, and a temperature that started at 30F, and reach a “balmy” 35F by ride-end. And just to make it more fun, it snowed. Jacques rode great and his coach joined him for the fun!
