Its 17 degrees in Gunnison and an hour from the midnight start of the Grand traverse ski event. Crested Butte to Aspen.
Brian and Jon Brown, partners for 7 of the past 8 years are up in CB now 'warming up' for the start. Its going to be a cold one.
They are both using Randonee equipment this year a first for Brian, in this race, and with fresh snow last night it is a good call!
Its going to be an interesting race, the new snow has added another element . JB hopefully has Brian under the thumb and paced for the first part of the race..
Wish them luck.
Me? Maxwell dog and I are getting up at 5am to drive to Aspen for the finish. Hopefully we'll get there before they do ...crazy eh.
