The excitement at American River has added two more strong men to the Western States field. Anton and Lon are now added to the long list of contenders with less than three months to go. As I wrote in a post several months ago I was hoping for the most competitive field ever at 2008 WS and it is shaping up to be pretty close to that. With Anton, Lon and Todd (1st at Cool, 4th at AR) joining Koerner, Skaden, Cooper, Meltzer and a whole bunch of others the race is shaping up to be truly outstanding. Add to that the potential for a snowy first section and super-hot canyons and it should be a great day. As the day draws near I will, of course, have more to say, but as for now, I guess we all better get out there and train!
