Started out not so good. Chain jammed on the first pedal stroke. It actually bent a link. It was skipping and chattering all day. About 10 miles from the finish I got SAG driver John VS to drive me to the bike shop in Prineville. They removed the bad link. Seems fine now.

A decent day. A few sprinkles but warmer. A little wind too, but warmer. A little sun too.

I put the RTPs back on the Ravn as the Grando is in the shop. I sure goes well on the road with these tires.
