MG and I are in the Howard Johnson’s awaiting the other 43 riders out on the course. Maile is in her car driving the course in reverse, and says the riders she’s seen are doing well. Maile posted photos from the start and from the secret control she staffed with MG this morning at her Flickr page and Slideshow.
We’re hosting out-of-towners from North Carolina, including Branson Kimball, Mike Dayton, JoAnn Farowicz, and others from Ohio and Texas.
