Sorry, hit the wrong button. Jan's time is terrific and best US rider ! Congrats, Jan. No matter what weather, that riding time takes a tremendous amount of training and preparation. I'm impressed. It would be nice to get a story telling how different physical and mental obstacles were overcome while en route. Should be a very fascinating read.
