The rigorous and historical race from Crested Butte to Aspen begins tonight at 12 a.m. The fastest teams will arrive in Aspen in the morning. The 40 mile course from Crested Butte to Aspens follows roughly the same paths taken by mail delivery men when the two cities were mining towns in the 1880s.
C.A.M.P. sponsored Team Crested Butte dominated the race last year with three of the four members finishing on the podium. Jon Brown was on the first place team, Eric Sullivan was on the second place team and Jari Kirkland was on the first place co-ed team. Will we see a repeat?
