I have, too. Lazy journalism at its best. One bit says PBP is not a race, then calls it a race, n the next paragraph! Apparently Steve's bike is similar to Tommy's. Well it has a frame and two wheels, yes, so I suppose you could argue that. Also, apparently 80000miles is only 1237km!!!!

Interesting that it states that Kurt plans to start on Jan 10th, so he will be 2000 miles down already by then. That's a lot of catching up to do  :facepalm:

Well yes - but he has extra days in 2016 to ride to catch up -- it is any consecutive 365 days - not an exact calendar year
