Big Dan Hall, got the message, be the guy in front at the line, not a mile before. Following Dan up vomitron hill were Mark then Jeff. Mike Kempf and Ben took second and third at Bishop.
Unfortunately we had to award a Purple Hoof point to Bethany who decided to have some asphalt for supper. She was a nimble trooper, though, elegantly rolling with her bike to avoid too much damage.

With Dan's stunning double he forges into a tie with the King for the GC lead. Unfortunately the King has some tough family business to attend to and may not be able to defend his title. Our best to you King!
