Stop breathing Pete's air, dammit

I said it before and I'll say it again: It's Pete's world. The rest of us are just riding through it.

He reached McGrath at 7:40 p.m., setting a new record for the course. Just a shade over three days to pedal 350 miles across the Alaska wilderness in February.

The suffering and accomplishment are hard to comprehend, but I'm sure celebrations are occurring on Pete's home planet. Wherever the hell it is.

Awesome job, Pete.

Amen to that, Tim...

But Pete's chasers just pulled out of Nikolai, which is *only* 50 miles from McGrath. They're trailing Pete by enough to make his accomplishment all the more impressive. But it's not 140.

Doh! My sloppy mistake. I've removed that info. Thanks to Rose and Jill for catching it.

Pete must be from another planet, how else can you explain his ride?
