Gonna get there there?
I don't know
Seems a common way to go
Get down and row, row, row....
The climb up was about 6,000-ft in 25-miles.
Climb, climb, climb...

Well this just got a whole lot more exciting than that other race. Big George is now in the lead at the Tour of Missouri, which is located in our former home and appropriately nicknamed the "Show-Me State." While no one doubts Big George's ability to ride like a madman for his team mates, individual success has been very difficult for the Lieutenant. With Discovery set to disband this would be an awesome way to end things.
Show Me George! We'll be watching all week.

This one is gonna be rough, but wow, the scenery will be amazing. Heading out in a few hours to Salida and then will stay up past my bed time to do a bike race - yeah that sounds weird! I think they will have updates at each aid station on their blog, so check it out for Sunday AM breakfast, lunch, and hopefully I'll be done before dinner!
I set up the Mooto-x for 34x21 which is 46.9 gear inches. It's the lightest that I've run all year and I hope it's not going to drive me crazy on the flatter portions. Stan's ghetto tubeless for 2 wheelsets, the AC Sprint 350, and the DT 240s w/ Bontrager Mustangs. Still about 380-gram between the two wheelsets, but definately the Mustangs are more durable. Will have to decide which one to ride on the drive up there. I rode the AC 350's at Cedro with Donnie on Thursday PM and wow, those are smoking fast on the climbs, but a little flexxy on the descents. So that's my decision to mull over. Do I take the weight penalty or roll up the climbs easier....which will total 20k ft!
Oh and I'll bet it's gonna be real friggin cold up at 12k before sunrise!
And to think I could be at cedro today and then drinking beer afterward. ;-)
