    Yep, old crank removal tool. That is it! It just wasn't coming to me for some reason. Thanks, Gummee! I haven't used that in 25 years I bet!

    The Cruz 3000-miles to a Cure bike 4 person mixed team got through the Rockies in fine fashion. They're at mile 1404 and picking up speed. The other 3000-miles to a Cure team, on conventional bikes, is at mile 1320. Ridge's team is just about through and they're at 1175. Looks like everyone is safe so far!

    Nice speeds from the recumbents!

    We made good time over the climbs and are into the Colorado plains today. Fighting some storms with hail about the size of peanut M&Ms.

    Already improving our avg speed and chewing miles between the next team in front of us. Demoralized the Brazilian team tonight as they were pedaling squares with a 3 o'clock tacking wind and we were motoring along at 22mph.

    Do you follow the rider the whole time? Play music for them on those speakers?

    Hmmm, I only see one rider? I thought this was being done as a team time trial? So you have a team, but you take individual shifts riding?

    At night, we have to use a direct-follow method and stay within 20 feet of the rider at all times and the rider must always stay in our headlights. Music only allowed during daytime. Night shift can only use it for routing and safety notifications.

    But you get to see this in the mornings...

    Ridge - your updates are awesome! I'm not well versed in how these events are run or ridden so the pictures and commentary are fascinating. Keep us in the loop and stay safe!
