Step one was getting off the island and driving to Fernie; basically from one edge of BC to the other. That meant going over several mountain ranges, and the temperature kept getting hotter. When it hit 38 degrees C (100 F), I stopped for a Slurpee!
Arrived and went to bed. Friday I went for a short ride and swim, me up with my peeps, and did all the usual pre-race stuff.
Here's a preview of Day 1 (and night 1); stay tuned for the full 3-day report when it's all wrapped up!
