I haven’t forgotten but at least the sting had faded — at least until today. A package arrived from Paris. It contained the PBP 18th edition magazine along with the official 2015 video. Blatantly missing was the medal for those successfully completing the ride. I didn’t bother to look at the pages listing the results, including my DNF. Are these guys trying to rub it in? But the video was pretty good. This year they used a drone and have some excellent fly overs. I was even able to pick out a good sleeping spot for 2019 when I hope to try again.
