Tuesday, August 23, 2011 - Race ReportsAlright, just a 100 miles between 7,000 and 11,000 ft. Yeah, it was hard. I actually felt pretty good for the first two hours, but then the stage started to ware on me. Evidently riding at altitude is harder.
The first big climb was chill, the group made it over just fine. Then it was still 65 miles to the finish. There was a headwind and it took forever.
I met a guy at the finish who said, "He reads my blog sometimes." I told him everyone reads my blog sometimes and I only talk to people who print the entries out and pass them around the office. Sorry man.
Anyway, we're sleeping at Mt. Crested Butte which is at 9,500 ft. Basically that means tomorrow I'll feel the same way I do right now. Tomorrow we top out at 12,000 ft twice and the expected ride time is 5:30 - 6:30. Filthier.
