The sun rises, it would soon be up. And we would be off.
Here we go. Just a few miles in.
Already going uphill.
Yup, its that freaking steep
Turnin' over the cranks.
Gut check. Strava start. Yeah, right. Leave that for the skinny dudes.
This is a steep part. I'm doing the "paperboy" Photographer captured it well.
The downhill was fun! Tuck and GO!
Bike: Specialized Roubaix Expert
Fuel: Sunrype Mango Manosteen, Rootbeer Gu, and on course PB&J
(okay maybe an oreo or two, too)
Pedal time 6:38.
Weather: About as good as it gets for the desert in January. 47 at start. 75 at finish. Breezy in spots on northern third, but not bad.
The event: Great. Quiet, low traffic road. More aid stations than you could possibly need. The chance to at least see of the areas best riders. Strongly recommend this one.
