Then we went through downtown Austin – fine town – ate lunch, and did a tourist trek, shopping a bit in a very artsy crafty neighbourhood.

Sunday 23 October: The GPUSA

off they go!
off they go!

Our group bus dropped us at the main gate.

We bought more gear, ate and drank very well, and enjoyed the support races.

The U of Texas marching band and the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders entertained before.

Our area filled up as the start of the race…

Our seats were called skyboxs, and were by the Legends Club hospitality room.
