Yep, with decent weather and no significant mechanicals I am thinking they will finish in the 4 days/7-20 hour range, though I am hoping faster.  The weather is really turbulent up in the Camp Hale area right now, but they probably won't reach there until the early early morning hours tomorrow.

Trail conditions and weather the worst since first year of race IMO. That year was monsoon and rained all the time. This one may even beat that. Good luck all out there its great theater. I am glued to the screen or phone!

This is awesome. Guac all over everything, man he sounds great for being out there in such tough conditions. It literally makes me jealous.

Me and some other guys were up at tree line below stony pass last night but decided to bail back to silverton after getting nice and damp. Going to try to head back up this afternoon, camp high and leave super early to scamper across the high sections. The weather has definitely slowed things down out there.

Once again I'm enjoying Brett's call-ins.
Always seems in great spirits.

And Hal's calling in with a forest fire on the American Trail race.

Looks like Plesko is getting a quick meal at Mount Princeton Hot Springs.  Nothing like pulling up to a fancy restaurant smelling like days on the CT.

He had ice cream...haha!  I guess that qualifies as a meal these days. He said he has had zero calories since sometime last night. Surely the ice cream will help a tiny bit!

Unlike last year, it doesn't look like it was a good year for the ladies.  Hopefully another female goes out for an ITT so we get a finisher.

  Damn!  Zero cals since last night!  I guess he kept the theme going on how much food to carry as with the rest of his gear.
 I'm amazed he didn't fully shut down running on fumes for that long!  Hopefully he can revive himself and have a good 2nd half. 

Although checking the radar it looks like the Chris and the rest of the top dozen or so are getting nailed by another big storm.  Its going to be another epic evening for everyone with sloshy shoes and desperate bivys!  There is going to be some great stories after this year!

Any updates on Angel's tent this year? Saw a couple guys drop into Powderhorn, there is a PO there. Interesting.

It's looking like less than 5 days is going to be really tough this year.

Well that got interesting. Is there a bike shop in that area?  Mechanical, the draw of a hotel bed, or stealth mode for JB?  Nice move Seth but Chris is reeling you in. Let's see if Chris can hang with the gears to the finish.

Chris just texted a few minutes ago and said "JV at Conoco need food" -- I assume that means that he found out from Seth as he passed him that JB had to stay in Copper to wait for the Conoco to open to get food. He'll be well-rested at least when he gets back on the trail.
