TransWisconsin in Photos.

My time spent scouting and riding the route.



I'm short on words for the experience.  I had an incredible ride before pulling the plug in Hayward.  I rode some incredible terrain and hiked a bit of sand.  I rode solo for most of the three days out there and pushed to overcome some of the personal challenges I had on the Divide.  I scouted some new sections for 2011 that will be sure to please...

16 riders congregated in the town of Hazel Green for the start.  Many fewer than had signed up, but still a solid showing for an event of this nature in its first year.  I think we'll have a few more next year.  A big Thank You for those that came out and rode, regardless of where you finished your ride!

I'll come through with more about my own ride soon.  Life gets in the way and it has been a busy and enjoyable spring/summer!

The weather's looking decent with some spotty thunderstorms and heat coming our way. 

I'm looking forward to living on the bike for a few days.

DK 200: The Facts

Unbelievable!  Corey Godfrey rode like a god to take the win despite dealing with his own physical challenges.  I finished 6th, with Tim Ek, who finished 5th.  I am deep in recovery mode right now.  I was not prepared to ride in 95 degree heat with full exposure for 200 miles.  Up here in the great north we've had exactly one day near 90 and none above.  A strong will and a good riding partner in Ek helped get me to the finish.

For now, enjoy the data...It is very telling of how the day went if you dig a bit.
