Good picture!!! Nice to see she's still in it.

Four are in Nova Scotia already. Will be interesting to find out why they went up there.

Tina and Martin are still in the running heading into the third leg. I cannot imagine how tired they must be by now. Information at http://ibr.wvi.com/

From yesterday: "Rookie Tina Venters called from altitude in Colorado. Although sounding slightly breathless when
describing breathtaking scenery, she says she is having a “fantastic” rally."

They posted the rally book. http://ibr.wvi.com/ibr/_2017/RallyBook_PublicWeb.pdf

Very interesting landmark sculptures.

All indications are that both DC area riders finished safely. Now to see if they qualified, and in what place.

Fantastic showing for BMWBMW - Looks like both Tina and Kristin are finishers! We should throw a party for them when they are back in town and hear first hand all about it!

FYI, it's Kirsten, not Kristen...

We should throw a party for them when they are back in town and hear first hand all about it!


We're already working on it. They're both customers and good friends of Morton's BMW, and we'd love to show them some love... and cake :-) Stay tuned.

Steve - Yes please let us know when the recognition/celebration of Kristen and Tina's 2017 IBR accomplishments will be - if at all possible I will be there! :clap2:
