Ken and Tom went down to Crested Butte today for the Alpine Odyssey, which is a Leadville qualifier, and which recently got some press because a fella named, Lance, decided to enter. They were able to hang in the lead pack for about 6 miles, riding right beside Lance for much of it. According to Ken, he had his game face on, not (Jenn) Dice-style chatty Kathy.  Lance was ready to rumble, but so were the Alchemist boys. Ken finished just over 5 hours and in 14th place. Tom finished around 5:20, and took home 21st. Both were in the top quarter of their divisions.

During the race, Ruth, Grant and Max cruised around town on their bikes, sipped ice cream shakes, and enjoyed the fantastic weather. They did pause from their escapades when a tourist asked to get a photo with them.

No Leadville spots for any of us. Looks like we’ll do the Honey Stinger next year instead!
