Yahoooooo. I'm in. Got in from the waiting list, having been unlucky in the lottery.

This makes my 15th try. I've completed the 5 passes 10 times, including the past 8 years in row.
129 miles, 16,000 ft of vert.

Past 2 years on my Bacchetta Aero recumbent, 4 years prior on my Vision recumbent, before that on my Trek boneshaker. I'm now 51 years of age.

I think anyone over 50 should bypass the lottery selection, what do you all think?

Who says recumbents can't climb.
