70% of men and 55% of women did not finish.
Jeff Abitz was not one of them. Faced with backed up traffic, deep snow, and both tires constantly going flat (in the first 12 miles), he (literally) pushed his bike about 20 of 30 miles.
On a mission to achieve the Triple Crown, quitting was not an option.
(I'm not good at quitting, just ask anyone who ever offered me a beer - Jabitz).
