MRP was in great shape! Great event and thanks to all the volunteers that came out to support the race. There were a lot more cow bells this year and spectators cheering. Good time!

Agreed. A great day, all went very smoothly. Kind of savored the race instead of running myself into the ground but still had a PB time. Results are up on the website if anyone's interested.

Its funny but I have yet to see a blackfly during the three times I've done this race. Got nailed by a few deerflies this year which was new but that's about it. I'm sure if I stopped in the plains I'd find some but it just seems odd.

Yep! Lots of fun again.

I've never seen any black flies during the race itself, though a couple came by during the wait at Indian Lake.

The surprising thing to me was just how many butterflies I encountered while riding this year; maybe they should rename it "The Butterfly Challenge?" :-)
