SF Enduro II events results

Received this from Strava this week!  Great news that I won the first KOM at the recent Enduro II 

This was a great event but next year I'll do it on a hardtail MTB.  After 5 flats on the CX bike I had to abandon due to lake of tubes, CO2 and patches.

Deep Thoughts by GSisler

Stop staring at my feet. If you want to know what I'm wearing on my feet (they're Vibram 5-fingers) then ask me, but don't stare at me like a circus animal. Also, yes, I have read Born to Run, I do know about barefoot running and NO, I didn't get the Vibram's after reading the book. I've had my Vibrams for 2-3 years now and I have been injury free since! I train 1x a week in my Vibram's and I do the rest of my running in my Inov-8 shoes. So... if you want to know what I'm wearing on my feet, just ask me, but stop staring, it's rude.
