UPDATE: The field is down to 38. Results are being posted at the Shenadoah 1200K site.
Mike Dayton reports on his Research Trailer Park blog that by mid-day today some 14 riders had already called it quits out of the 56 who started. He and a group of NC Randonneurs are awaiting the field at Fancy Gap. Branson Kimball has uploaded a photoset of the NCR gang set up in the hot sun at his Picasa photo page.
