Pushing on

John arrived at Puntilla at 7.26pm Tuesday. Closely followed by Cory Smith, Billy Koitzsch, Robert May and Aidan Harding. They all left Rainy Pass Lodge at around 5am Wednesday. Who knows how long it will take them to get to Rohn over Rainy Pass. As Kathi has quoted, the conditions can be so varied that it could take up to 24 hrs in partularly difficult conditions.
Billy Koitzsch has a SPOT so if you look at where he is, John is likely to be close by.

We may not hear when all the riders get to Rohn, so I think we are all going to have a long wait until we get some news. It gives us all time to move the mouse away from the refresh button and live our own lives for a few hours. Me, I'm going to go spinning and then have a nice long bath.

Well done Mel too! Waiting for news is probably (nearly) as extreme as actually racing...

Continued Big Love from the Singletrack lot!

Woohoo!
Just saw the update John made it into Rohn in the leading group (I think but it isnt clear)
I guess you'll all read that on the results page when you wake up anyway...

Conditions sound terrible - much relief that Shaggy is in the bunch that reached Rohn. This has become one amazing adventure - we're all rooting for you!

Just saw the update he is not at Rohn yet, but still in the Dalzell gorge. Have been following Billys SPOT and it is making very slow progress although at least now it is being picked up...that should mean less snowfall or cloud cover. At best he is still in 10th from this info.
Its home-time now....and I'm s'posed to go out tonight..think the gf will understand if i just stay in and click refresh repeatedly??
