    In Brian's own words:
    "Day 1 (Cumberland,) killed me. Bad mix in camelback caused my stomach to hurt most of the race. Also went out to hard. Oh well. Bad thing as my back and legs were hurting from this day. Finished 14th. 2hrs 50 min. (Open Solo Course)"
    "Day 2 (Campbell River) I felt really good and the course was good for me, but still my legs were hurting. Finished 13th. 2hrs 30min. "
    "Day 3 (Powell River), today I went out fast again and for 90-105 minutes I was going great, but the track was demanding & I hit the wall. The last hour or so I paid, but it was still my best finish, coming in 10th just under 2 hrs 47min, putting me at 11th overall in the Open Solo Class"

    More to come, as today is scheduled to be the toughest day of them all with 2,110 m/6,922 ft of elevation change and 65km/40.4 miles of terrain to cover.

    Brain is giving a great effort! In the top 14th to 10th overall out 450 riders is pretty dam GOOD!
