    Does that mean that 45 teams either didn't show or DNFed? Dang! But, hey, we managed 3 checkpoints before our 7pm Turkey Pen extraction. The cramping was only getting worse and had to make a collective decision. As usual, though, I'm glad I was able to make the attempt and regret nothing but the lack of riding time over the winter.

    You can answer me now or listen to me later....

    Did the majority of the top teams go counter clockwise? Make me kick myself in the ass a little harder.

    Major props to the top three, all great people, locals, dropping it down...

    It blows my mind that Poss crushed it like that. He should do a P90x promo.....

    Great race as always, E. plume, sorry again for explodin'....

    The top 10 was split half and half, I believe. Top 3 all went counter clockwise.

    What a great event. Big Kudos to the organizers and volunteers. Every Volunteer at the four checkpoints we hit were super friendly and most riders were willing to help a couple of newbs with map help/directional advice.
    If there was a category for: First Timers, 40+, on Single Speeds, I am pretty sure we made top five!

    By the way, I twice ran into a guy riding with a busted top tube...did he actually finish the even???

    as I'm sure the only thing that separated us from the Koerbers was route selection.

    Clockwise more or less for us. Black>Maxwell>Claw>Buckhorn>SM river> 476>1206>hiked pilot>Laurel>then hit 5000 CP back to Bradley Creek Rd.> LC/Bradley CP> Cantrell>up Horse cove and then whatever that double track is down to 476> 1206 then headed to 225 CP back 477 to Clawhammer> Maxwell> Black to the finish. I think what sucked the life from us was Laurel Creek all the way to the top of Horse Cove. Not complaining though, could not think of a better way to spend a day than riding with so many fine folks on the best trails in the land.

    Huge thanks to Eric and his Pisgah Productions for putting this event on. Also a huge thank you to all the volunteers that helped make it happen. Totally stellar event. See you next year. Greg L.

    Ross/Bruce and Charlie and I both went CW - 80 miles total. We were first to the FR 225 checkpoint so I suspect the top 3 teams took a different route.

    Great job Eric and crew!!

    What a long fun day in the woods. First time finisher!! If I only would have known what finishing 5 min. later would have done for us!! I didn't think we were going to make the time cut off the whole way down black.

    FWIW from 5000/Spencer....probably 80% of teams were headed to Laurel/Pilot next.

    So yeah, that was pretty awesome. Why are your races on the hottest days of the month. . . geeeeeez.

    Thanks for all the hard work, especially the volunteers that had to bushwack their way out of the checkpoints!!

    So inquiring minds want to know, are there still some free Cannondales hiding in the forest? Was the SAR team we saw going up 477 past White Pines Saturday night deployed for racers?

    Thanks to everyone involved.

    Thanks for the great race again Eric. I missed it last year due to surgery, but came back and had my best team showing yet (my 3rd PMBAR)... even after thinking about quitting at mile 27 due to a hamstring cramp and general lack of readiness, I hung in there for the full 65 (4 CPs). I just kept thinking "keep pedaling, keep pedaling..." Unfortunately I was the weak link on the team, but that's probably what kept me going... just trying to catch up

    I'm curious to know what routes the top teams took. I know some went up and down Pilot Rock and avoided Laurel Mountain... hmmm, is that faster than going up LM and down PR, or vice versa? I'm sure it depends on who's doing it, but for the average rider which is faster?

    FWIW, here's my route... http://connect.garmin.com/activity/31998813
    We did the CCW loop and avoided the CP on 5000 and what I thought would be too much extra climbing.
    I read that on the internet.

    The VAST majority of teams headed over to Pilot were planning on doing the up & down on Pilot. Maybe one team I spoke to said they were riding Laurel. With a "brisk" pace teams were getting up Pilot in less than an hour. It is/was a much faster route vs. the traditional Laurel/Pilot loop.

    And because of things like this. . . For the first time ever I might agree with TeamDicky. A proposal to close all FS roads except for where we have to cross them.

    Can you imagine? A PMBAR with less than 20 miles on gravel roads? Maybe its insane.

    That was a great race. Had a blast. Anything I can do to help Eric add another one of his races in the mix let me know. Eric's format for races has got to be my favorite type. Good Times keep them coming.

    Can you imagine the clusterfcuk of trying to police that?
    You can ride 1206 from Pilot to 476 but not 476 to 276 and not 1206 from pilot to laurel 1206 but laurel to 5015 is OK...... non-local racers would be saying WTF is he talking aboot?
