Snow and cold and the storm back east probably slowed things down.
I'm sure KBill will be back at it after he can get his front door open.
Or he finished it and is cruising around Louisiana - getting ideas on how to make the GXV into something AMPHIBIOUS!!!!

I may be getting ahead of myself.

Bill,

Congratulations on finishing the Birkie The fresh snow the day before the race must have slowed things down a bit.

They had the foresight to plow it off. It was too warm for it to set properly in the short time before the race.

Nice trophy!

Nice trophy!
Thanks to all for the congrats. The classic trail was well groomed for the race but the skaters suffered heavily in what looked like beach sand.

The Hamms Trophy is a special honor.

I'll try to be worthy.
