Climb to Kasier results: 261 starters, 193 finishers, 68 DNF's, 37 DNS. The unhealthy air was definitely a factor in the number of DNF's this year, but once above 5000' the air cleared up considerably.
Why wasn't the ride cancelled like the Western States 100? Because we didn't have fire trucks blocking the course. The nearest fire was 60 miles away in Mariposa County. We gave deferals to next year's ride to those who asked before registration opened Friday.
One collision between a rider and a boat trailer - truck hauling trailer tried to pass a rider on a curve. Road rash and torn shorts, but the rider finished.
From those who rode- one of the best supported rides ever!
