Another win for my palmar├Ęs!

Last weekend I raced the Death Valley Road Stage Race. The race took place on Saturday and Sunday, and both stages were BRUTALLY hard. Because of the high altitude (about 10,000 ft) I was literally seeing stars for the last 30 minutes or so of each race. I guess my body was performing a bit of a balancing act there, splitting oxygen between my brain and my legs!

The official results haven’t yet been posted, but I got 1st on stage 1, 2nd on stage 2, and 1st on GC.

Stage 1: 45 miles, 8200′ of climbing
Stage 2: 29.5 miles, 6500′ of climbing
