    Tony? What happened to Tony (mesotony)? Please tell me he didn't get eaten by a bear.

    Dang, Pete wasn't too far off Darren's time...on his SS! Impressive as usual...

    Good job, Jill. Haven't checked your blog for a write-up yet but I'm headed that'a'way.

    Rob? Please tell me someone had some emergency cheeseburgers stashed along the trail for him...he needs those to counteract the gallons of beer in his Camelback.

    Carlos,

    I just wanted to say thanks again for putting on a great ride. If you ever need help with future events, let me know. I know there's not a lot I can do from afar, but I could put together posters or send press releases to Banjo Brothers. Let me know.

    - Jill

    No Maas!
    Had a blast out there, but my blast had run out before I even reached Coopers. I bowed out there with Meg from Valdez and Eric who had suffered four flats, two broken chains, a fractured(?) wrist and bruised rib and a split shoe. Meg and I were able to patch him and his bike up to keep him from walking in from Juneau Lk. Walking sucks.
    Technically, my bike was flawless with only one flat, I only bounced my face off the trail one time, but once my spirits fell, they could not be resurrected. Get it? Resurrec… oh whatever. Still, I got to ride a great trail, beat myself up in that short distance, and I'll be back next year with a better game plan.
