Bill Fischer reports that all riders have crested Salem Mountain at mile175 -- the highest point on the course. Greg and Andrea came through first at 6:15P, followed by Norman at 6:30, and then Robin and Bill at 7PM. Just under 40 miles to go to the overnight controle in Halstead. But the first 30 miles is checkered with many challenging climbs. The first riders are on track to arrive at Halstead around 10PM.
