  1. Hey, Kevin,
    Only 3 broken ribs. 4-6 weeks off the bike….bummer. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to give us Mountain Junkies something to do on the weekends. You guys are awsome for organizing this series. See you in Montvale.

    • It’s an 8+ mile course with approximately 800′ of climbing per lap, no climb more than a couple minutes.
