Friday, August 20, 2010 - Race Reports
The altitude here is making everyone crazy. Crazy enough to want to race I guess. Anyway, the first two real stages of the Tour of Utah are over and they've lived up to the expectations.

Wednesday was hot and humid just like Rob's home town of Regina, in Canada. About 80 miles with two major climbs. The first one wasn't that bad except for the feed zone a half mile from the top. That alone broke the field up, causing some dramas.

The second climb went a bit harder. Ian and I made it over the top in the front group and Frank caught back on soon after. That group had about 40 guys in it by the finish, but I've never made that front group in years past, so I was happy.

Yesterday featured Mt. Nebo. Once we got there it was 5 miles of steep climbing followed by 5 more of rolly uphill over 8000 feet. I got dropped once they started attacking about 35 minutes for the finish.

I caught up to a few guys and finished 21st, 4:20 down. But our man Ian Boswell rode to an impressive 3rd behind Levi and Mancebo. Just so everyone knows, I interviewed him before he was famous.
