What a beast. I would've stopped in Leadville for the night and got a comfy hotel room. Joe is riding on to the Tiguwon Road, in the dark... :bow: :bow: :bow:

Personally, I would've rode down to Edwards (a little out of the way, but not much) and spent the night at the Crazy Mountain Brewery. Minturn is a fine town as well. Go Joe!

Am I reading the document wrong? He hasn't been on Decalibron at all.

Weird. Joe just posted on Instagram from Alma regarding snow on Demo, Cam & Lin, but no mention of Bross. Says he's heading to Quandary. Skipping Bross is shocking. I know it's technically on private property, but everyone does it, including all FKT aspirants. I'm baffled. I mean, he rode his bike on the Durango-Silverton train track, for goodness sake! What the...?!

With Quandary today (right now?!), do you think he is on track to finish Friday or Saturday?
