Day 7, the last and final stage
Wow! I never would have imagined we would be here. Funny thing is, I can't imagine not being here after this degree of hard work and dedication to finishing this race. It is truly a pleasure going with someone experienced like Roy. Roy has a great sense of humor and is really a pleasure to be around when your physically at your limits. There are cutoffs in todays race and the expected times are around 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Not sure what the elevation gain is but whatever it is, it will dwarf in comparison to all the other days (see times posted). I have spent so far approximately 48 hours in the saddle since the beginning of this race. Wow! Today is supposed to be 47 kilometers and a technical ride down Whistler's most famous trails. It should prove to be a great finishing ride. We are now in the home stretch as we complete our mission here at the BC bike race. Stay with us for the last days report and a post race report that is sure to make you laugh! We will be uploading pictures to my blog so stay tuned. Here we go day 7!!
