Tuesday, August 9, 2011 - Race ReportsGood times in Utah. I used the same porto as Christian Vande Velde and you can bet I sat on the seat. Other than that standard race stuff.
The prologue today was at 7000ft up to the top of the ski jumps used in the 2002 Olympic Games. This is picture of Chase Pinkham, by Steven L. Sheffield, shows just how painful it was.
Didn't know how I'd feel. I had a few good weeks in Tahoe and few bad weeks. I finished 24th and I'm happy with that.
Tomorrow's stage 1 is 113 miles with 8200ft of climbing. That is when things will start to be decided.
