    Someone tell Stu to clear his inbox. Also, tell him:

    Hey! File tread will be fine regardless of rain or not. The sticky clay might suck a bit more, but it'll suck with any tire, and there's very little of it considering the length of the ride. Volume trumps knobs IME.

    Gas stations - there's a long ways to the first one at mile 47 in Chester. Then you'll have an aid stop and several stores in Eastman (mile 65) and then there's a Chevron when you cross I-16 at mile 100, and then it's 24 miles to the finish line.

    I'll let Mr. Stu know...as if I had not already told him that 23's are fine. Sheesh.

    RACE DAY IS THIS WEEKEND!!

    111 pre-registered. Weather forecast looked amazing a few days ago but the chance of rain seems to keep going up...but we've got time for that to change. For better or worse.

    I drove the 100k route yesterday morning as a final course check. Ran across a big turkey running back and forth along the fence trying to get to the other side....eventually he remembered that he has FREAKIN' WINGS. Also found someone who didn't make it off the course....

    See yall this weekend!

    Man. Today was awesome. No long write up now, but here's some pics that pretty well sum it up. FYI most of the day the temps were in the upper 40s/low 50s and it was raining steady for about 5hrs during the event.

    Start.




    A dirty 44




    Dirty AWOL


    Miles and smiles!!


    Me and Boyd - your 100k overall winner!!


    Good seeing some of my buddies from Augusta


    Wheel customer of mine riding a set of Boyds - great meeting him in person


    200k overall 1st and 2nd - two local boys. There's some STRONG riders in Middle GA


    This group had the goal of finishing last, and they nailed it, coming in right before sun set, still mostly all smiles.
