Cool license plate we spotted at the finish.

9-17-05--Picture-perfect weather, a beautiful route, and great support added up to a Knoxville Fall Classic Double Century for the record books.  Kudos once again to the Quack Cyclists for their fantastic support.

Presented below, Campy Only's photos from the ride.  As always, email us if you can ID any of the riders, or if you would like a higher-res version of any photo emailed to you (for free!)

One of the nicer parts of this ride (for us) was the chance to ride again with Kevin Walsh.  Kevin and I have been doing double centuries together for almost 20 years, going back to the early days of the Tour of Two Forests. He has gone on to qualify for RAAM (raced in it last year) and was planning another run at the Furnace Creek 508 this year. Go, Kevin!

Note: We've marked our favorite shots with "*"
