There isn't much to say about it, and I don't have any photos.
Let's just round up and call it 8000' of climbing in a little less than 50 miles.
The Colnago is perfectly suited for a pleasurable day in hell.
We busted in a new team member. That makes me happy.
I simply can't carry enough food to fuel me. I took in probably 3000 calories, and still couldn't stave off an horrific bonk in the last 5 miles. I got all disoriented, went down too far, and had to re-climb a long, brutal section to get back to the turn I missed.
SeanBobs wife was at the top with a picnic spread. Soft cheese, bread, fruit, and beer.
The longest 5 hours on the bike I've ever spent.
Best part of the day:
A double Red Bull and whiskey shots in front of a Plaid Pantry. The clerk laughing at us so hard. Video of this exists and I will post it here when it surfaces.
I hope the sun is shining wherever you are. Today is going to be a good one.
