Hey distance people. I have an idea I would like to get all of your input on for an event possibly in 2011. A multi-day Stage Race (a la Tour De France) where racers start together each day and cover the same distance not in a circuit but point to point.

All the pictures on this post were taken by the talented Iván Molina Castrillón and you can see the whole set on his Facebook album.
