    This is pretty awesome, saw it linked from @Kelly O'Mara 's If We Were Riding newsletter - the BM 2016 participants' before-and-after photo gallery.

    Some of them looked pretty weathered before they ever started, but others... you can really tell they got fucked up out there.

    This is the EMJ guy that finished last year after 3 loops in 2015. Really not certain if he started lap 4 that year but gives you an idea of how tough it is at only 60% finished. Fun reading social media of everyone saying they’d like to try it. 100 miles is hard, there it looks impossible. Nevermind the fact I couldn’t find my way out of a wet paper bag with a compass in hand.

    EDITED to add: found his blog and he didn’t start the 4th lap that year.


    Fattest BQ on record--- *allegedly
    2016 (and last) Rev3 Cedar Point champ- don't google the time though

    One thing about those pictures that I really like, is how many of the runner with modest goals achieved them. The people who were all "I'mma probably do one loop." and they do it. I love realistic expectations.

    Awesome to see this thread on here. I've been following the race the last couple years. There is a new documentary out this year following Gary in 2016 and 2017. It is really good!

    I bought the documentary, but looks like it is coming to YouTube in May.
