Almost time to leave

Monday morning I have to attend a pre-race meeting and then we start at noon. Just wanted to say thanks to those that donated. Right now I have just a shade under $1500 that's going to the Lance Armstrong Foundation for cancer research. Right now I am in the process of making sure that anyone that wants to, knows how they can follow along. As of yesterday, it looks like there will be 18 starters and it looks like almost every rider will be equipped with a SPOT beacon. A while ago, I created a website to document the build up to this race and it will also serve as a good place to do a write up and post all the pictures I'll take. If you go to the site you will see a link on the upper right that says CTR Leaderboard. It takes you to the Tour Divides site. They are going to run the board for us. It will display all beacons. I'm not sure how good theirs is (I think it's the same) but I will also have another link on my site that will take you to a Google image and show only where I am. When we played around with this, the satelite images got in pretty tight and you could really get a feel for the terrain. Both maps should provide viewers with tracks of us every 10 minutes (as long as users have them set to track mode).

Here's my site: http://www.denver2durangoviacoloradotrail.blogspot.com/

I think that's it. See you guys later.

-Chris

Best of luck Chris! You're a nut for doing this, but we already knew that about you so...... Be safe, have fun, and be strong!

No doubt, physiologically, he's a freak of nature but...it's not about the nut. EPO.

Re: Almost time to leave

So........ you were actually at a terrorist training camp and not actually on a bike ride?

Or pretending to be John Rambo in the desert?

I'm so confused.........

Re: Almost time to leave

I think you need to put the drugs back in the evidence room there Bossman. I'm pretty creative but I can't see any John J. Rambo similarities in that pic. Just one sexy ass bicycle rider ensconced in lycra.

Don't try to deny it. I know you'd like us all to believe that silhouette is supposed to be you riding your bike....... I'm not buying it.....
