The Griz was beautiful. WE did the 80 mi. cutoff and had more fun than last year. The Calfee tandem is 12 or so lbs. lighter than the Burley we cranked up the hills then.
I did some last-minute cable rigging to hook up the drag-brake where Calfee failed to provide cable stops for me, but all in all it looked passable and WORKED!
The weather was beautiful and the food (as usual) was EXCELLENT! A friend noted that when he asked why there weren't any peppers for the sandwiches, they grabbed a notepad and listed it for next time. Talk about a pro-active group.
who's the guy in the full Colpack kit?js

Because he just got there and hasn't taken them off yet. It was cool in the AM and we were sweating on the climbs then "wicking" on the descents.
I love the descent from Cold Springs Summit.Zignzag

7,200 to 2,500 ft in 12 twisty miles. What a great event. The North Forkers go all out with the food: breakfast, lunch, tri tip dinner, sushi rolls, baklava...Great course too.
