LOTOJA is something every recreational cyclist in the Western US has heard of and feared. Officially known as the "Logan to Jackson" road race, it is held on the first Saturday after Labor Day. As one-day rides go, this is a beast. 206 miles (332 km) and 7500 feet of climbing. It was meant to be a North American equivalent of the one-day European spring classics: Paris-Roubaix, Liege-Bastogne-Liege, Milan san Remo, and the Tour of Flanders.
2012 was the 30th anniversary of the race and Tate's first time racing. Tiff and I ran support. An awesome day and unbelievably strong finish for Tate finishing 12 in the Pro-1-2-3 category with a time of 9:14:44.105.
