No serious frostbite with CGRT, some loss of facial skin, but only minor. One fellow from another team, rode two laps without goggles, and froze his corneas...not sure how that plays out, but not that SMRT.
The team earned an award, called the ' Innovators Award ', given to the team who faced the most adversity and strived to overcome it. THat made me prouder than the 2nd place points. I'll post pics when I can.
Mark you have to try this...its a hoot. 09 was the 20th anniversary for me at Numb Bum, my first one in 1989, on a 82 750 Seca. I've lost count, but this was about my 9th 24 hr. very cool event.
