Thursday, August 25, 2011 - Race ReportsEven with the late race start it was still an early morning. We needed to drive the 2 hours from Aspen to Vail. But the real trouble was getting into the parking lot.
Vail was packed. I mean seriously crowded. Lots of fans, in the way at first, but then the attention was nice. Two girls were even taking pictures of us warming up with our skinsuits rolled down.
Later those girls came by again and picked up Ben JM's rider card, looked at it for second and then carefully put it back. They didn't do that with mine.
The race was the race. Awesome fans, almost too close at times. I made sure to keep it out of the crowd and out of the red.
It's common knowledge that my wife "likes" George Hincapie a little too much. Today George enabled this infatuation. I'm not really sure what I think about it.
