Congrats. We gave you a shout out while you were taking break on the side of the road between Ashford Mills & Bad Water. Great day in the valley.

Awesome to see Dad and kids having a great time together!

You know, one of the best parts for me is seeing all the support and encouragement given the boys from other riders..... it really gives them a boost..... Thanks !!!

Nice! My uncle did the double while his wife and son did the single. He should get one of those things and they can all do the double together.

Oh man...I didn't realize you were a BF'er!!! We saw you at the Badwater rest stop (we were on the Pinarello tandem) and then at the buffet on Sunday morning. Congratulations...your kiddos were so cute! I was actually just showing my 8 year old daughter your pics on the Adventure Corps site earlier today.

Likewise..... Your Pinarello looks awesome..... is it Carbon Fiber ???

My boys really handled the ride well..... we'll be attending (attempting ???) several more triplet centuries this year !!!!
