Yeah, Mike. Hows about a redo on the pic. Or maybe no one started the event, thus the blank screen here. You are a tricky one! ;)
Is there no header picture showing up?
Mike,Sorry for hijacking this post with a request, but I can't name all those racers: Could you sometime do an entry regarding hydration. How you create, pack, and carry your water supply?Many thanks,Mike Riemer
Header pic is showing up; it wasn't this morning even though I saw the photos in the 'warm feet' post (didn't check over the weekend).Group photo is up, but [Schultz]I know nothink! Nothink![/Schultz]
Stamstad was sponsored by Chevy trucks? I must really know nothing about the endurance racing scene.
Geez--I thought *someone* might at least offer up a few guesses.Not so much, apparently.I'll give y'all another day or so...MC
Mike, the pic is showing now. Thanks! Okay, second from the left is Stamstad, that's the easy one! Next to him I'll say that's fassibinder, and then someone in the backround. After that it's you, Mike. Then I haven't a clue who the rest are except to say that one of them is probably Rocky, but I don't know what he looks like. Okay, I tried! Who knows anymore?

Nothing could have prepared me for how unprepared I was for that experience. And the conditions couldn't have been better!MC

The cyclists were last to leave the start that year, so that pic only shows a partial field. Remember that there were divisions for cyclists, skiers, and ski-jorers in '98 and '99. So not pictured are Bill M, Ralf Kuba, and one other ski-jorer whose name escapes me, as well as Tom Possert (who virtually invented the foot division by blowing everyone away and finishing that year). I can't remember if any skiers started the race in '98, but I'm 99% certain that no skiers finished.MC
