Default USA Pro Challenge

Its off and running, well stage 1 is complete already...

Bridger got to see the beginning of his first pro race today, sadly my first pro race too. Turn out was pretty good downtown.

Pictures from the start in Durango. I was right before the last corner entering Main Ave. where a sprinter's prime waited before leaving town.

Pretty awesome isn't it? We'll be seeing a couple of the stages this week, although unlikely to bring out the speed suit this year...

Nice. Spent the afternoon watching the live feed. Those guys were absolutely flying today averaging close to 27mpg with 10k feet of climbing. Danielson was so deflated when he was finally caught. Would have been nice to see him take the win today.

I was thinking about trying to get up to Boulder on Saturday but not sure yet.

Not sure if I made it on TV yet this year, just had on a disco shirt. Lots of good costumes on Cottonwood again.

We watched the finish in CB. Got a high five from Jens and shook Tejay's hand as he was being interviewed.

Went to the Gunnison start today, and Cadel gave my son his cap, so that's pretty cool...

After getting Cadel's hat, Mateo was inspired to do the strider race after the Pros started. Izzy couldn't handle the pressure of the crowd, so she backed out at the last minute!
