4000 riders, a beautifully swept road to Whistler, no stops for bikes, cool weather but no rain, it was a perfect inaugural event.  I had my doubts… but was able to make it just fine.

The big uphills:  Taylor Way – very steep;  Furry Creek – better than expected;  Britannia – very steep;  Squamish hill – 10 km long and a grind.  The organizers kept everything running smoothly.  The field was happy and most people completed the event.
