It is worth noting that Jill,:thumbsup: is now the second woman in the four years of the Soggy, to enter and complete the 109 mile scenic route that trashes your body and mind and perhaps a bike or two. Janice Tower was the first.

Tony? What happened to Tony (mesotony)? Please tell me he didn't get eaten by a bear.

Dang, Pete wasn't too far off Darren's time...on his SS! Impressive as usual...

Good job, Jill. Haven't checked your blog for a write-up yet but I'm headed that'a'way.

Thanks Carlos! great race! Great people

I had a really enjoyable time - five more hours of enjoyment, and I could have finished this thing...DNF'd at Devils about the time Peter was finishing...I got a lot right on this attempt: food,hydration - just need to ride a lot more - I will be there next year and you too DaveIT?

No Maas!

Had a blast out there, but my blast had run out before I even reached Coopers. I bowed out there with Meg from Valdez and Eric who had suffered four flats, two broken chains, a fractured(?) wrist and bruised rib and a split shoe. Meg and I were able to patch him and his bike up to keep him from walking in from Juneau Lk. Walking sucks.
Technically, my bike was flawless with only one flat, I only bounced my face off the trail one time, but once my spirits fell, they could not be resurrected. Get it? Resurrec… oh whatever. Still, I got to ride a great trail, beat myself up in that short distance, and I'll be back next year with a better game plan.
