Visiting Mount Rutland

With both unseasonable temperatures and the reality of the fall racing season looming on this Monday morning, YHC emerged from the #Fartsack looking for a way kick start the week with a tall glass of #DRP.

  • Great work by the PAX this AM. Garnish and RA led the way with Garnish doing what he always does, which is crushing hills.
  • Rutland Court is now a Strava segment? YHC learned this upon his return home following #Scramble. Who knew that the grade on Rutland Court is 16% at its peak?
  • Not sure if it was Monday morning or Rutland Court that scared away the PAX and had numbers down this morning. It was too beautiful of a morning to be spent in the #Fartsack.
