    Wow the trails look amazing in your preview photos on twitter. Bit bummed that there isn’t a course record for Jim Walmsley to beat due to the course changes. Looking forward to Walmsley flying and finishing in under 8 hours. I also hope you had a chance to do an interview with Michael Wardian! Thanks for the coverage!

    Very much looking forward to the coverage as the carnage unfolds, and thank you very much for bringing it to us all, I was looking to make a paypal donation but when I click on the Paypal link it just brings me to my login page, can I ask what the email address should be for sending donations Bryon/Meghan?

        Link is fixed I think.
        But, unfortunately you (me) can’t donate from Japan. Not an issue on your side but apparently Paypal Japan doesn’t support the donation feature – to any cause/site.

        A big thanks to all of you people.
        Good luck have fun!

    Send some love and support if you can through PayPal people!

    Thanks for all your help. just to give you heads up, when i tried to pay with credit card, changing the country to Canada went well, but the website keep asking for the correct state and you do not have Canadian provinces listed on that column. or maybe Mr. trump took them away to block us? lol….thanks again for live coverage. cheers, Mir PS. i had to use my paypal.

      Thanks so much for the donation. It really helps!

      As for the state/province thing… that’s all PayPal! I got the same lack of provinces for Canada, but switching to France, I received a form with the correct options for a French address. Ha… and, now, I just switch from France to Canada… and provinces showed up. Really! :-)
