Today is the TT for the Pro Challenge. All the teams stayed in Aspen last night and are driving to Vail this morning. That seemed like pretty bad planning. I would have drove here after the race last night so the riders could wake up normal and then ride the course on their own time late this morning, but that is just me. Obviously the race today is going to make a big dent in the overall GC.
It was nice from Trudi that George won the stage yesterday. She got a bunch of TV time. She said that the riders were freezing at the finish, which the support didn’t really expect. I guess descending Independence Pass wet does that to you.
Yesterday Dennis and I decided to just ride. We went around Lake Dillion and up Swain Mountain Road and then to Breckenridge. We got some coffee in Breck and then skirted storms all day to get back to Silverthorne just a little wet.
Today is going to get away from me I can already tell. There is a Coor’s Classic Reunion going on here starting early this evening. If I watch the whole race, there isn’t going to be hardly anytime left to do anything else. I guess that is the definition of a full day.
Here’s so photos from yesterday.
