Not that the issue has been raised, but I just wanted to put this out there to Ted and the other organizers...
in the wake of the stories of "no one finished the route", etc., I hope you don't end up paring down the distances for the daily tracks next year. I love the "long distance" option if one is so inclined.
Someone (can't remember who) said around the campfire on Night 2, "Great ride Ted. Although a little optimistic with your times."
Leave the tracks long. It rocks having the cannonball option.
