Legs Aflame

Pain... as much fun as yesterday was, that is the only word that can encompass the whole event. Eric, Mason, and I (along with other members of the team that could not be present) are getting ready for the 1000 warriors ride in August which boasts of being the toughest stage of the toughest stage race in America. With 96 miles, 3 major climbs totaling close to 11,000 vertical feet... I think they have every right to claim it.


For our training ride we started at my home (Highland) and went up the Alpine Loop dropping down to Cascade Springs. After a near death on the decent (random guy cut me off sending me off into the bushes... totally pulling a lance, tour de france 03, stage 9) we made our way back out continuing on down, stopping at Sundance to get some agua. After that we toiled our way up Squaw Peak in what seemed oven-like temperatures. That would not be our last climb, we turned around and pushed our way back over the loop. It was roughly 80 miles and I feel it safe to say, well over 10,000 vertical in climbing. Some call it the "super gauntlet" (minus south fork) I just call it painful.

1000 Warriors slots!!!!!

I recently had lunch with Rick Bennett, who is the organizer of the 1000 warriors, I told him that we had a team and wanted to race the 1000 warriors, but didn't have the funds. He told me that he would welcome our team under his invitation (free of cost). He told me that "we could only do this if we race to win." I told him that we would have 4 or 5 racers working for our two best climbers and would do all we could to get them there.

If we think, we can competitively race, and compete to win the stage I can get us in. I just need to know by the end of next week.

UVU Crit Series Races June 4

Here are some pictures from the crit this evening. As promised, there are some from the A&B race also!
There was a good turnout tonight, we had around thirty for the C&D race at 7:00. Thank you to all for coming out and racing. We had an incident-free race tonight with no crashes. Last week was a little rough on some of us. Mike went down, and Kris form Ski Utah split her chin in another. (Best wishes to Kris, and we hope to see her out again soon).
We had a number of teams with good numbers tonight including Canyon Bicycles, Evo Racing, Racer's Cycle Service, and UVU Cycling. Keep getting the word out to your friends, and other cyclists you meet.
Enjoy the pictures.
