And, bringing that back to the coffee cup idea, how about upcharging the cup to start the fund?

Thinking out loud...
Let's not let this idea get lost in the midst of the f5rehose!! Sandi Spears volunteered earlier to be our official photog.

Wasn't someone talking about this yesterday? The big teams doing the service and stocking the riders up before the marathon.

Awesome. F5 Logistics and Support continues.

Must be mentally hard to be Barreda Bort today after his time at the front. Now he's chasing around ~ 17 guys back, eating dust.

again... spot on... it's becoming another type of race...

Caselli and the others in the new school won't have to learn to navigate... the course will be WFO GPS cross country GNCC soon.
