What kind of shape was the trail in? Did you have to push at all. I helped at the gear check/weight in.......maybe I checked your gear!!!!!

Well the trail was good if you were on skis. It got up to about 42 degrees and rained a bit during the day. I pushed quite a bit here and there and then I pushed almost non-stop from 2:30 pm to 8:30 pm very little riding during this time. But once I hit the Yentna river I don't think I pushed at all. I heard that the temp dropped to around 0, it felt cold but at times, but it also got fast I even got into my big ring on the rivers very fast and everything was rideable. Overall the day belonged to the skiers. Results are posted on www.susitna100.com. The first skier came in a 12 hrs and 44mins. The first biker came in at 18hours and 30mins. For me the second half of the race was much much faster than the first half of the race. The best thing about the race is that almost everyone finished. Out of 80 starters 76 finished, I really think that is great.

You might have checked my gear I was the guy who showed up at the gear check without a lightsource. My lights were on my bike D'oh!! I did a quick re-check before the start.
