racing in colorado:
south of denver, mid to late september. nrc event, parker mainstreet omnium, day 2. the road race. pro 1/2 is 105 miles, five laps of a 21 mile loop with 1450 feet of climbing each lap. 105 riders. go. three or four miles into it, the wind comes up, howling at 20-30 mph from the north.
observation: the truism that iowa's hills are flat and windy STILL is true.
but they're NOT at 6200+ feet.
short day. good beer.
ego saving event: rider comes up to me and says, "you're the devil, aren't you?"
