Favorite year: 1996 - Craig Fram and I went back and forth all year. My only shot was to beat him at the marathon. He won in 2:23:52 I got second 13 seconds back and lost the GP by 2 points, but the 50 points was my best point total.

I love the pic of you and CraigMillar on Powah Line hill. The hill seems more clear than it used to be. Come to think of it we do have old forgotten routes like Dipsea. Heading up to the tippity top of Powerline Hill is long forgotten with Courtney's Pass now in use.
