No offense, friend but this is insane. :-)
You are doing 50k mountain challenge so soon after Pikes Peak? I am officially impressed.

Johann-

Here is a video to get you going about Pikes. This is one of the Team CRUD guys doing pikes yesterday, while it snowed all day down here in Colorado Springs.

Looks like an Awesome lineup, you are going to have a blast this year. Particularly in Colorado. We will definitely need to get a beer or a Colorado Margarita . . . Pikes is going to be EPIC and I will not be there to see it. If Carpenter runs, which he always does, I want him to beat Kilian. Not that I have anything against him, they are both good guys - humble, it is just seeing Carpenter win being over twice Kilian's age, gives me hope as an older runner. Go Carpenter!
