The team had a very busy week leading up to departure.
Calvin buffing Vortex.
and they’re off! “Vegas or Bust!”
Seven guys packed into that van.
This is this year’s roster, with their fastest previous runs at Battle Mountain. Todd and Trefor were not able to run faster with Bluenose in 2012 than they did with Vortex in 2011. Todd, Cam, Trefor and Calvin have been pencilled in to run Bluenose this year. Alex, Oleksiy and Marc will run Vortex. Marc doesn’t fit in Bluenose.
Of course they weren’t quite to the Gardiner when I got a call from Todd asking me to pick up various bits and pieces from our local LBS that they had forgotten.
