Somehow when I lived in Colorado this race didn't hold much appeal. Separation makes the heart grow fonder as they say...as I sit here 9 miles from the start wide awake at 3 AM it's tough to contain the eager, childish(!), giddyness I'm feeling. Hope it lasts for more than a few hours ;)
There looks to be about 40 riders taking the start?? Apparently Stefan didn't make the route hard enough. Odd 'cause it's been fodder for more than a few middle of the night wakeful thinktanks on my part...this route hits me in a gutteral way that GLR never did.
I'll explain that when I get back. For now, follow along here:
