Crashed at 30 miles. Hit a patch of soft snow, that looked perfectly ridable. Pulled the muscles in my right shoulder and can't hold on the the handlebar. Had to push the bike in one handed for the last 20miles in to Skwentna. Had to scratch as there was no way I was going to be able to carry my bike over Rainy Pass. The possibility of not making McGrath really hadn't occurred to me. Hugely disappointed and quite upset. Getting a flight back to Anchorage tomorrow.
