Sick of the Primary Election Nonsense? Vote Here For Something That Actually Matters.

I've got a fun new poll in my sidebar. This one could make for a long conversation amongst enduro mountain bike riders but I thought a simple little poll would be fun too.

For those unfamiliar with these riders/events here's a little about them:

Iditarod Trail Invitational - 350 miles on snow in Alaska in February... very dark and very cold.
Pete Basinger's Blog

Grand Loop - 360 miles of very remote, rugged terrain in Western Colorado in June
Dave Harris' Blog

Great Divide Race - 2490 miles along the continental divide from Canada to Mexico in June
Jay Petervary's Blog

Colorado Trail Race - 530 miles of serious mountain riding (over 300 miles of singletrack and over 60,000 feet of climbing) through the Colorado rockies from Denver to Durango in July.

Each of these riders set a new course record in 2007 and every one of these was a very impressive performance. If you're not familiar with these events or riders take the time to read some of the above links. If you search through the race links and/or blogs you can find some race reports from these performances. Great stuff. Once you're done reading don't forget to come back here and vote in my poll.

Those are all very impressive performances. Too difficult to choose only one.
Geoff, I checked out your training log and loved it. What a great site. I've decided to get one going for myself.
Best of luck!

The first three were all Curiak records, yes?
