Henrik Olsen is the first rider to arrive at the Lamar over-night control, arriving just before 4PM. He's covered the 424 miles to here in 36 hours which puts him on a RAAM Qualification pace.
Henrik was greeted by the volunteer crew at Lamar, which currently includes Ron & Barb Anderson, Chris Roth, and Eric Keller. Steve Scheetz and Maile Neel will be joining the crew a bit later tonight.
Volunteers Len Zawodniak and Kyle Chu have also just arrived at Lamar. They will be headed over to the Waterville / Little Pine Creek S.P. area to set up a revitalement controle. This is about the half-way point on the 80-mile segment between the Canton and Lamar controles.
Current weather conditions at Lamar are partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 50's -- the forecasted sunny skies and 65 degree temperatures never materilized.
