La Ruta 2005
I couldn't make it back to Costa Rica this year. Bummer. Good luck to the racers: Lou, Manny, Matt, Scott, Dan-O, Kelly, Tim, Jay, Hillary, Cal, Cliff, Fraser, Bernal and others...
With the rain this year and home field advantage I'll go out on a limb and make a prediction that the ticos won't have their streak ended this year. And unless Hannele, a strong South African challenger, has really been working on the climbing, I think La Ruta Lou will take this one for the 3-peat.
