    Age groupers pouring out of the lake

    Our hard working team, Sylvan Smith and Mike Reilly

    Amanda Stevens on the bike.

    #IMCdA Stevens has a +2:04 lead on Blakemore at seven miles into the bike.
    #IMCdA The lead trio of Potts, Brandon and Mathews have just rode through 14 miles with 2-5 seconds in separation.

    Best part of IM!

    Empty bleachers waiting to be filled with fans

    #IMCdA Mathews and Potts have a gap of about 20 seconds on Brandon on the grind uphill at 30 miles.
    #IMCdA Stevens still has a two minute lead on Blakemore at 14 miles.
    Looks like Potts and Mathews have opened up a gap to Brandon who is now +1:30. Twelsiek is riding in fourth, +4:30 and has not made up any ground on the front pair since the bike start.

    Delsault and Russell in 11 and 12, riding together and making up time/looking strong. Evoe is in 13th, looking thirsty, our spotters report. #IMCDA

    Stevens in lead at mile 28

    Potts and Mathews are still putting time into Twelsiek who is riding in third. Twelsiek hasn't been able to move forward at this juncture, and, in fact has lost about a minute to the lead pair since the bike start at 38 miles.
    Men's splits from the timing mats at mile 35:

    1 2:18:18 5 Paul Matthews CO AUS

    10 2:27:24 9:07 8 Matt Lieto OR USA

    Potts leading Matthews looking strong at mile 44

    At mile 44, Twelsiek leads Millward at 6:00 down. Brandon literally gritting his teeth in 5th. Our spotters say it's getting HOT out there...#IMCDA
    At mile 50: This year will be all about Potts' and Matthews' "battle of the bike." Potts is this year's defending champion #IMCDA
    Our thoughts are with @dedegriesbauer after a crash early on the bike at #IMCDA hope you are alright Dede!
