A story in today's Gazette says wave 2 of the Pikes Peak Ascent filled in 67 minutes yesterday (versus 9 last year.) The slowdown in due to more restrictions on who can register. The cheaper Marathon filled faster, in 26 and 50 minutes for respective waves. (I tell you racers, the money you save is not worth your knees.)
Interestingly, wave one is still open as of noon, Thursday.
