Saturday was the 2010 Togwotee Winter Classic, Race #2 and 15 racers started the event. My goal for this event all along has been to grow the sport of snow biking in the greater Jackson area so it brought a smile to my face to see so many folks in the Togwotee Lodge parking lot early Saturday morning. In 2008 we had 8 racers, then 8 again in 2009, and 7 racers for Race #1 in 2010. It was very gratifying to see the big jump for our final race in 2010.
The Big Climb comes early on the CD trail
Our friends Jay and Tracey have completed the "race" to McGrath and have begun their adventure to Nome together. Tracey set a new women's record for the 350-mile course this year and was profiled in an Alaska Dispatch article about the race. Jay took third in the deepest field the race has ever seen. Impressive stuff.
