Rob Welsh just came in. He says it was a "Hell of a Day ... A Good Day!"
The chatter in the control room (Chris G., Rob, and Randy) was that today was a much harder day than yesterday, and they think maybe 20K feet of climbing. Mostly not too steep, but lots of 10% grade. One climb was like Middlebury (Middleburg?) on BMB, where it keeps getting steeper toward the top until you're climbing a wall.
Volunteer Steve Scheetz is now sweeeping the course from Lockhaven back towards Canton. In Lockhaven, he saw the recumbent rider, Dan Blumenfeld and 2 other riders riding strong ... they'll probably be arriving in Lamar within the hour.
