We got quite the bike race going on here!- Comments, rumors...
Well said, thanks Pat. That is so true.patirwin said:After Finger lake communication is spotty at best and non-existant after Puntilla until you reach Nikolai, 50 miles from the finish. That always makes for a great race as spectators must wait for a checkpoint to call in, and racers often know little of what's happening on the trail behind them. I once led the race all the way from Skwentna and I had no idea how close the racers were behind me, which led to pushing myself more than I normally would in a race. It's nerve wracking when second place may be 10 minutes behind or 10 hours; can I take a quick nap or push myself to the brink and hope I make it to McGrath. Pete knows what he's doing but if he doesn't know where the other racers are...
It's one of the things that makes this race so unique.
Kathi is doing a great job of keeping us informed considering what little info she has to work with. Thanks Kathi!
Be patient and we'll know what's happening soon enough
