Craig mounted a high definition camera to his handle bars and carried it with him on his Breathless Agony adventure!! He created these fun movies which show the course on Fast Forward with some Fast Music in the background. Thanks for sharing your great work, Craig.

How hard is this climb? It's BRUTALLY STEEP.
For Engineers, we recommend studying the Engineering Analysis.

While suffering through the steepest part of nearly 12% grades, these riders saw the Grim Reaper who greeted them while dancing to Billy Idol's "White Wedding" and some great tunes by Bachman Turner Overdrive as they were "Taking Care of Business" ... or was it only in their imagination?

Rest Stop 2 was made possible thanks to the hard work of Francoise Durant, George Hayter, Jeff Hindman, Marissa Hindman, Kerin Huber, Bill Hughes, Pat Kapp, Jason Mumper, Gisela Paolinetta, Cheri Scherr, and Robyn Stein. . Thanks so much for helping us out!!

Thanks to our SAG Drivers who were seen all over the course all day: Frank Neal and Mike Rathwell both of whom worked the event start to finish helping so many riders work through all kinds of problems.
