Marking this one as a /FAIL
I think the broken spoke actually saved me from being embarrassed about un-fit I really felt.
The first leg I felt great, good spin on the first climb and really surprised. As the climb continues I felt my hip, legs and body position Get out a wack. I started to get more and more ties.
The back road of Manson as a up/down ride. Chip sealed road mean your momentum is going to be somewhat lacking at times.
Coming back down to Chelan from Manson, my spoke popped (see pick below) and I took the excuse the just called it. Also a slight safety issue because the next climb was a class 1 climb. My rear wheel would not hold up to this type of climb and down hill.
