Racing on the Colorado Trail.
Here is a fascinating race tracking site
And some of the facts at this moment in this unsupported epic race
Jeff is :
108 miles in
14:19 of moving time
and is in 2nd PLACE
A lot can happen in the 3 or 4 days of racing that are left ...

The CTR: 470 miles and 65,000' of elevation gain winding through the Colorado Rocky Mountains from Denver to Durango. Approximately 300+ miles of singletrack at elevations ranging from 5500' to a gasping-for-breath 13,200'. The CTR is a monster! If the monster is in a good mood, you may experience Colorado's beautiful sunny blue skies and wildflowers blooming as far as you can see! But, be warned — the CTR's mood can change on a whim, and you may just as likely find yourself getting besieged by massive hailstones and lightning bolts. In short, don't come to this race unprepared — no one will be there to rescue you.
