Breck Epic begins tomorrow. Pre-race registration and meeting was today. Good to see familiar faces and friends. Riding this one solo since Stuart decided to ride with George W.Bush instead. Hard to believe, I know. In any case, 6 days of hard racing ahead.
Big congrats to the Alchemist Team riders and friends racing the Leadville 100 today. Drew (8:11! I know you wanted sub-8, but that is absurdly fast), Jon(9:01 (Pulley, you couldn’t have ridden one minute faster?)), Paul (Leadman contender threw down a 10:15), Deb (sub 12 belt buckle with no base miles under her belt. Great comeback.), Jenn (9th belt buckle, one to go!), Rick (10:50 on an all-mountain bike), Bliss(9:16 and here in Breck right now for the Leadville/Epic Double down. John, you can’t be serious.), Travis (9:50 off the couch! He just flew in late last night ,and saddled up for 100 miles.), Doug (10:20, the big winner earned 100k for World Serve and clean water. Boom! But more importantly he was riding in a custom HOMEGROWN jersey).
Someone send me some more pics fer cryin’ out loud.
Also, big ups to Alchemist Rider, Steven, who mixed it up with some big names in Steamboat for the Stinger. He brought home 5th in the singlespeed cat.
And Chris W. throwing down for a podium spot at Winter Park.
Strong work, everyone! Ken, Bliss, Chris C. and I will be on it tomorrow.
