Only if I get to sleep in your barn, drink all the beer and do jumps over the bonfire afterward.

That sounds like a TGMBG gathering to me. My back issues that kept me off the bike for a year still keep me from jumping over much of anything these days.

If "fully supported" means shuttles to the top of Bennett & Black you can count me in.

LOL @ 28.000 elevation gain. Mt Everest summit is 29.000 feet.

I always wanted to climb Mt Everest on my mt bike. That would be some sick dh coming back down.

By the way highest mountain peak in lower 48 states is Mt whitney. Which is only 14.500 feet high. I know because I hiked it.

^^ Think maybe I'll opt for the Cascade Cream Puff instead - - it's just 100 miles and 'only' does about 15,000' of climbing.

First stage was done in a monsoon like downpour. Some of the guys went through two set of brake pads. Soupy.
