12:00-CDT: A special THANK YOU! goes out to TSH sponsor Trailhead Cycling, in Champlin, MN. After discovering that really only one of Amy's saddles was comfortable during ultra-long efforts her crew made a call to Trailhead. Pam & Larry (TH owner's) promptly located the type of saddle Amy needed and shipped it overnight. Amy's crew will pick up the saddle's when they arrive at the next Time Station in Trinidad, CO.
TSH says THANK YOU Trailhead Cycling for your support!!
