Hey all,

Just wanted to let you all know that we have 2 BCC members(Bob Tavener & Jim Weir) participating in this race.  They are leaving tomorrow(wed) and I thought it would be great to drum up online support on our site, true BCC Style.  Please comment as Sandra and Bernedette; their support crew, will be checking to give them words of encouragement. It will be a tough ride through the desert and death valley. Click here for Race Route Links.  They are in the two man team category under the name "Canadian Lynx".

Here is the link to the Webcast: http://www.the508.com/2011web

Here is a video from last year:

This picture of Bob when He did Leadville in 2009.  Guess he figured that that wasn't enough and decided to tackle the Furnace Creek 508!

You guys are awesome. Go get 'em!

We wish you good luck but hope luck is not required and your training will get you through. Epic is an understatement. Never sure what to wish someone who is about to enter the pain cave. Have fun does not seem to fit? Beer is on us at the end of season party?

Wow, the last time stamp suggests that the boys are just 22 minutes out of the two man lead and are sitting tied for 3rd - go Bob and Jim!!!
