Geared up and warmed up, ready for Day 2.
Blaine and Ted with our gracious hosts, Bob and Barb Shaunessy, the owners of K2 Ranch.
Today will be the toughest day both physically and mentally for Blaine and Ted, please leave your comments with words of encouragement for them! They need to know that you are behind them, and it was one of the first things asked when they got off the trail yesterday! They have 10 hours to complete this portion of the race. Today is 74 km and over 3,813 m of climbing. They enter the Rocky Mountains today, yesterday's route took them through the Purcell Mountain Range. This is the point that 20% of the riders will drop out of the race.
We have met teams from Australia, Italy, Switzerland, all over the US, New Zealand, Japan and England. Be proud of your local boys!!
