    Pretty cool.

    I had heard of this race previously, but never researched it. Just curious if they did a group start for the tandem teams or if they were in various waves?

    The start info didn't explain it as I read it, but maybe I missed it.

    Regardless, hopefully it was 60 wheels and 60 riders enjoying their race on 30 bikes.

    Thanks for posting Alex. This was the first year they did waves, based on the previous years time, so tandems started in different times. Ironically, the top 4 all started in same wave, pretty much because three of us were in the top 5 last year too.

    I was sitting on the rear wheel of the lead tandem with about 5 miles to go, going into a big climb....when my stoker says STOP! NO Way, really? We were just getting ready to pounce on the lead and ride it home. But earlier in the race, a pretty big hit cracked the stoker saddle shell and the seat finally came off the rails. I'm staring at a seatpost with a rail frame, and my stoker with the seat in his hand, watching the leaders climb away. Doh!

    But, being the genius that 'ole stoker was, he stuffed the seat down into his shorts and 'wore' it the rest of the way. We lost a minute there, and had to take it easy on the last couple sections of singletrack and downhill, and managed to hang onto second place. It lists my wife as my stoker, but I actually rode with another dude from down the street. Look a bit further down the results, and you'll see Scott Quiring, who made my frame, now racing some tandem with his fiance. couple of pics here:

    You're right, that is freakin' genius! I would've never thought about doing that with a broken saddle. Very cool shots of the race. Did Scott make your fork as well?
