Nov 30: Report from Scotty

Thanks to Greg Bradley for taking the texts and calls from my crew and blogging them so you can all follow along! 5am seemed to arrive shortly after I closed my eyes at 11pm, but I felt really good all things considered!  I got in my standard pre race breakfast: 1 Hammer Bar, 1 Banana…

Day Two is in the books…

With a 9 hour and 22 minute finish today, Scott is back from the dead today… Just off the phone with both him and Darren – Scott wanted me to pass along to everyone how thankful he is for all of your support. And a special shout out to his crew of Darren and Lyle!!…

Almost to the top!

3 miles to go in the climb, then it’s a fun 13 mile descent into Hawi and the finish line for day two. Still feeling strong, and estimated for about a 9.5 hour finish on the day. Will update more real soon…

Welcome to Waimea…

Scott has finished the climb into Waimea, turned the corner and has one big remaining climb left… 8 miles up 2500 feet, positive uplifting thoughts are coming your way Scott!  Less than 50 km to go until the end of day two!

Still climbing…

What I mentioned as a slow climb to Waimea turns out that it is steeper than just a slow climb. 10 miles to go to Waimea now, where the whole crew has just finished a “refresh” stop where they cooled Scott down with ice and got him to eat some more calories. Direct quote from…

14 miles to Waimea…

Scott is looking great and feeling that way too. His rear wheel is making some sounds and thinks the bearing is making them – so some great thoughts towards that. They do have a backup bike and wheel if necessary so it shouldn’t be a problem. He is on a slow climb up to Waimea…

60 miles to go…

Alright folks, it’s time to send Scott some love and strength – he is getting closer to the big hills here now and needs all your positive power to climb those hills strong and finish the day feeling great!! First time trying to add a photo, I hope it works 🙂

Feeling fantastic!

Just past the halfway point of day two’s bike, and Scott is still feeling great! Enjoying a beautiful 83 degree day, and having a nice tailwind currently, Scott is smiling and loving life thus far today 🙂 Here is a link to the bike map for today in case some of you are interested at…

Hilo…

Into Hilo now, with Turbo and Diesel firing on all cylinders! As he leaves Hilo, he will be heading north while Mauna Kea (near 13,800 foot volcano) is on his left, Scott will have beautiful ocean views to his right as he rides along the rugged north coastline. Go Scotty!!! Stay tuned for more to…

Good morning from day two…

Greg here from Leduc, Alberta… I think it’s pretty cool to be a part of this and isn’t it crazy how technology works 🙂 It sounds like the internet signal is pretty sketchy around parts of the island, so I am updated by texts and phone calls from Darren as he and Lyle are following…
