Tougher than I am

As I type this the TransRockies race is going on and hardy souls of all nationalities are riding day after day from Fernie, British Columbia to Canmore, Alberta. The race covers 373 miles in 7 stages, with over 39,000 feet of climbing. The racers compete as teams. Unlike other team events, like the 24 hour racing format, the teams need to stay together. The time for the team is taken when the final team member crosses the line. All I can say is ouch.

The first two days are finished, with the racers competing in todays stage - #3 - from Elkford, BC to Etherington, AB. Good luck to all the racers, you guys ROCK!
