Snitz and Lauren finished the Everest successfully (riding together the whole time)!  Woooo....29,100 vert in one day!

Jim said it was really tough, but he felt good most of the way (ate and drank enough).  Lauren said she felt like she was going to blow lunch the entire 2nd half of the ride...miserable beyond belief.  Of course, that may be due to the fact that she looks to have taken the women's world's record from the current record holder and cycling legend Katie Hall (10 hours).  It's going to literally come down to a matter of 2-3 minutes.  They need to upload the garmin data, correct the vert and figure out exactly when they crossed 29,100 ft.  

What a day!!!!
