Yes, maybe, for sure, just kidding, no
Sunday, May 15, 2011 - General
Snow on the course It really snowed. Everyone saw the forecast and the ominous clouds rolling in, so it wasn't a surprise. But the decision to cancel the stage was a bit of a roller coaster.

At breakfast we learned it would at least be a shortened stage. So we waited around for another 4 hours and learned it was really a go at 1:15.

And it was a go, we put on our costumes and signed in. Then, literally right before the start, Levi and some official came on stage to tell us the race was canceled.

I feel it was a good decision. It was only freezing at the start, but wet, windy and snowy along the course. It would have been a death march, with actual deaths.

Overall, the whole situation threw me for a loop. Yes, no, maybe, make up your minds already!!! Hopefully this Tahoe vacation will end tomorrow and we'll get to race.

right decision - we had a good crowd waiting for you at Emerald Bay KOM, even rode it for you before whiteout; gears were caked with ice after 3 km-ride safely!
