It was approximately another 30 minutes in the truck from 8 to 10. I had filled a Ryno Power bottle with water (it was pre-filled with supplements) and had stored it in the cooler at another Pit, and Brandon this time remembered to get it down from the cooler for the ride. We were halfway through the race and he’d have to get on from 10 to 12 and again at Pit 14. Sitting in third, we were feeling pretty good. This is desert racing where a 15 minute lead can get eaten up in nothing flat, so being in 3 with less than 3 minutes from the leader, we had a fair chance at having better luck this race and pulling off a win. Brandon commented on how pleased he was with Garrin, especially since it was Garrin’s first time at a race like this one. After the initial adrenaline had subsided I had to break some potentially bad news.
