I watched the video replay... what a dud. They had almost zero video footage!?!?!?!
I totally understand not being able to fly up on Hoosier Pass. It was miserable up there. You probably couldn't ask for worse icing conditions for aircraft. It's really a shame we can't see the race up there, though. Those guys were suffering and must have been fighting it out given how broken up they were arriving in Breck.
What I don't get is why they had almost no video from Breck and Boreas Pass? The weather was clear and the helicopter was flying above. Something else must have been going wrong at that point. They missed some really good racing. I really hope the ongoing video issues don't kill this great race!
Here's my little bit of video. This is probably the steepest grade heading up toward Boreas Pass, a couple minutes behind the leaders:
I love Jelly Bellies, yum!
