Finish photos:
1 - Rojo was my inspiration, always out front and smiling. However, he would never let me take the lead. My finish line smile is real, but a bit more subtle.
2 - What I had leftover at the finish. I made damn sure I didn't run out of food, like I did in 2012 and have to bail 50 miles from the finish. BTW, I started out from Silverton with a bit over 4000 cal. I was hoarding up that bacon [two strips left] and candied ginger. Plan-A for final day was to camp at sunset [just once!] and enjoy golden hour and a hot meal, on the relatively flat section before Indian Ridge, wait for the sun to hit my tarp tent the next morning, sipping my final hot drink, and then roll out the final few hours for a mid-morning finish. The monsoon's return changed all that...

More photos:
1-Leaving the oasis of Stagestop at dusk, eventually stopping relatively early to camp at Kenosha. Stagestop has a very strong tractor beam and an almost inescapable gravity field. Pat and Company are the best!
2 - Atop Georgia Pass about 7:30 AM, Monday morning. Someone chime in with their names [Teresa, Tom, Justin, 4th person?]. That sure was an awesome descent. It's so much easier in the daylight too and just a blast on a full suspension 29er. Even a fully loaded bike. I say that after having done the descent on a FS 26er [Ibis Moj-SL, 140mm F and R travel], Ti 29er hardtail [Moptobecane, 100mm F] and this year on a Ripley LS [29er with 130mm front and 120mm rear travel].
3 - Robin, atop that Suck known as Tenmile. Actually I snapped his photo at the ~11,700' fake-out saddle, where you still have another mile and ~700' of climbing to go. Then there's that brake-baking descent to Copper.

Two... three more and I'll stop for now...
1-Amanda Demler - Mt. P. We had a most excellent breakfast at the restaurant that morning. What, six months post knee surgery? Only been mountain biking a year? Wow! Sorry, I'm bad with names - think I called you Alissa, Alyssum, Amanda, etc. a few times [edit: corrected].
2 - Adam - somewhere after Mt. P and before Fooses. I mashed along in a 21T granny with a 36T rear. Rob, somehow made a 28T chainring work...
3 - Rob - Baby Cataract Lake, for lack of a name for the lake above Cataract. One of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I want to go back as a backpacker to just sit there for a day... or two... and just do nothing but absorb the view. Most of the Coney and Cataract segments are so much suitable for our friends in hiking shoes, but the stunning beauty more than makes up for some of those crazy and hypoxic HAB sections. And I did get to see a moose, for the third time in six years, in the same Lost Creek valley we climb above, a bit past Carson Saddle.

Thanks for the pic Barry! Yes, me in the Green, atop Georgia. Wanted to make it by sunrise, but wasn't quite fast enough.

Hikeabike is going to make fun of me, because I always say I do not give a damn about my "time", but I think I actually beat 9 full days by 40 seconds!!!   I am counting the time it took me to get from the Waterton Trailhead Sign to the Junction Creek Trailhead Sign.

GPS shows 5 days, 5 hours, 50 minutes. Someone pointed out I should have waited another 5 minutes 55 seconds to finish, but I didn't oblige.

As with the first time, an incredible experience. It wasn't any easier, that's for sure. Great back and forth racing with the two Aarons.

Full race writeup:

Great job out there everyone, and a huge thanks to Stefan, Scott Morris, and CTF!
