We spent the morning watching the Women's Elite World Championship Road Race on an Italian internet feed. As I mentioned in last week's blog, this is an important week for cycling and today's race was the final outing for the women. The Americans put up a good fight even after losing a couple teammates in a massive crash. They animated the race, with sprinter Shelley Olds grabbing 6th place. USA is still holding at 4 medals, but we have one more chance in tomorrow's men's race. Overall, the Americans are doing a great job in all the events, including local Tanner Putt with 13th in the U23 road race!
With rain last Sunday then a week in San Francisco for work, and knowing that it will be several days before the rain stops and the trails dry out, I'm experiencing mountain bike withdrawals. I took several photos over the last few weeks of our single track adventures, but here are some favorites.
|Starting the weekend with pizza for breakfast at Silver Star Cafe|
|Saturday - Waited for Mid Mtn Marathon to wrap up, then enjoyed the quiet Deer Valley trails|
|Sunday - Armstrong Leaf Carpet on our way to Pinecone|
|Sunday - Spiro Switchback|
|Sunday - Moose Visit|
Then followed that with a full sweep when we rode Mid Mountain trail from Deer Valley thru PCMR to The Canyons on Saturday.
|Tuesday - Hike at PCMR for Dad's Birthday|
|Wednesday - Road Ride to Deer Valley|
|Deer Valley Aspens|
|Thursday - MTB Rob's to The Canyons|
|Sun dropping fast at The Canyons|
|Deep Thoughts at The Canyons|
It's now been a week since I've been on the mountain bike or actually any bike so no wonder I'm going thru withdrawals. On a positive note, that persistent saddle sore has finally healed. Guess it's time to wrap this up and reacquaint myself with the trainer.
