I'm pullin' for the triple crown duo, but not seeing Forest on Trackleaders as of this a.m.  Hopefully he hasn't dropped.

***EDIT***

Just double checked Trackleaders.  Forest is on the starting line!

Epic! Weather was great today here and Matt Turgen reported excellent weather even up near Rollin pass today. Had a bunch of riders in the store getting last minute things and what a great and interesting bunch - good luck everyone and I sure am glad I am watching from here! This is more fun then that little Tour in France!

Gotta confess....after getting thoroughly hooked on the TD, I am a bona fide blue dot junkie now.  Rooting for Forest!

No ESPN!  No hovering helicopters!  No photo motos or team cars!  The CTR is pure class, no crass.  Can't wait for those blue dots to start dancing.  Good luck to all.

Did it get off at 4am on the dot? 7am and some people still climbing Gudys?  That can't be right, 3 hours in.

Check the age of the points -- some are still near the start, but others are just old points.  That first canyon is very deep and very wooded, which means pretty poor GPS/sat reception.  That's why there are a few wild points that look like people are a little off route.  Once they get up on the ridges we should see better tracking.

My prediction: this is going to be a *good* one to watch.

And Max Morris too!  Good to see him back on the bike after having to scratch the TD.  And in fine form by the looks of it!

Looks like a nice steady line of blue dots pushing on. This will be fun to armchair.
The next best thing to riding it is reliving it through the dots.

It looks like Danny Powers didn't turn his SPOT on this morning, since his dot is still in Durango. Too bad! I saw him start with everyone else. Good luck everyone! And persevere through all that weather on Indian Trail Ridge!
