In no particular order I'd like to mention the cast of characters who made this whole effort possible:
My younger brother Mark who you definitely want on your side. I arrived in Belguim not knowing if I was actually entered in the race even though I had sent my application and money months before (long story). Mark called the head of Spa and had a 'chat'. I was officially entered an hour later. Did I tell you Mark works for the President of the European Commission. Nice!!
Rick, who rode halfway across Europe with his wife Beth in 1 day to help and support us. He manned the timers brilliantly.
Chris, my riding partner. I never worried about him. In an endurance race that is everything.
Patti, Chris's wife who put a huge effort into running pit-stops and re-fueling.
Ralph, the genius fabricator who makes anything possible.
