Ken Bonner checked into the discussion list while still on the road after the Colorado Last Chance 1200. It was the fourth completed of the four American 1200 km brevets in 2006. His times were faster each ride. His Colorado time of 54:46 was good enough to be first finisher and set a new course record. (The old record was actually also Ken's: 59:05 in 2002.) This was Ken's third CLC 1200. Here's what Ken had to say [Eric F]:
And hats off to Ron Himschoot for completing his second CLC 1200, this one in 86:34. Ron was one of three riders to finish the inaugural Last Chance back in 2001.
There were 3 other Canadians in the field in 2005: Henk Bouhuyzen from Toronto, Dean Zimmer from Winnipeg, and our friend Charlene Barach now living in Red Deer. All finished.
There were 29
starters (plus 3 riding a 1000 km version) and only 3 DNFs. [Eric
