No finish this year on the KTR for me and 4 others. 8 started and 3 finished a very tough KTR. 5 of us bailed after the first 20 mile climb up to La Sal Loop Road. It was getting ridiculous in the mud as we were pulling, carrying and dragging our bikes that wouldn't even roll through the mud as it clogged up the tire clearance. We were 30 minutes already off our pace from last year and decided collectively to bail. Looks like I am going to give it another run on May 29th and run it from Fruita to Moab this time. It will be hotter for sure.
