September 25, 2004--The fifth edition of the Knoxville Fall Classic double century started out a little cold--arm warmers and vests were out in abundance--but that boded well for the rest of the ride.  Temperatures stayed warm, but not hot (the weather station at the top of the climb before lunch maxed out at 87 degrees), and the Quackcyclists did their usual sterling job supporting the 200+ riders.  Presented below, photos by (and of) Campy Only's Eric Norris.  Email Us if you would like a higher-res version of any photo.
