The Crusher - Enhanced Gravel Adventure 100 mile event is not a race to be first, but a challenge to finish. Such is the theme for most of the events put on by the Non-Profit 906 Adventure Team 906adventureteam.com/
Diablo Cycling's Jeff Abitz and Adam Koenig chose Sunday, August 14th (you have three months to do this) to leave their typical racer mindsets at home as they joined two other past Crusher veterans in touring the remote roads and trails of the Michigan U.P.
129 miles later they finished in the dark, to the usual pageantry of an empty parking lot...and it was good.
Finishing Times (or whenever their bike computers were turned off):
Adam Koenig: 16:47:23
Jeff Abitz - 16:48:59
