Wilderness Traverse race (Biking) 1:30:00 [4] 35.0 km (2:34 / km)

Home Stretch

We all grimaced when we hit the bikes. We kicked up the level and raced out of CP6. Hit the highway and Sandman lead the way for most of the 30 km with a fast pace (22-25 km/hr). He was on a 29er and the rest of us on "old" technology coupled with the fact I couldn't access all of my gears....we had a minor nav error on the way back as we made a turn one road too soon to go to Nobel and hit a dead end at the rail road tracks....we quickly turned around and made the correct turn this time! It seemed that the last 3 km went on forever and it was with great relief to see the HQ after a long 29 hours!! We had to wait until Team 31 crossed the finish line in order to know that we won the coveted Rookie Team award!! Great race, great organization and logistics, great support from the volunteers and race staff......we will be back with a much greater appreciation for maps from 1988!! and friends were glued to their computer's back home and loved the live tracking. My wife said she was even yelling at the computer saying "you are going the wrong way!!!"
