Back to Kansas

This entry was posted in Racing on by .

We loading up and are driving back to Kansas this morning. The Tour of Kansas City starts tomorrow night. Yesterday we did an awesome ride up Golden Gate Canyon and then over to Mountain Base and back down Coal Creek Canyon. Mountain Base was pretty steep. The only downside to a good day was I fell on the gravel descent on Crawford Gulch Road. It is pretty steep too, maybe 25% grade, but down. I didn’t get too scraped up, but made that injection in my shoulder from a week ago valueless. I landed on my chest it doesn’t feel that great either. I felt pretty good the whole ride even though I have some kind of little kid crud going on in my chest. Pascal was snotty nosed when we got here and finally it made its way to me.

I’m planning on spending way more time up in the mountains this year. I think it suits my body better. And it’s just way more fun.

Bill climbing the steepest paved pitch. I knew he was hurting because he was off his seat, in his drops, and never looked over.

The nicest house I've seen in a long time. I'm going to be living there soon if a violin Vincent has isn't a fake.

    That’s a great loop. The first time I came upon Crawford Gulch Rd going down I was praying that the road kept going and I didn’t have to go back up. That is one steep downhill!
