PA Gulch Grind

Tunnels and rivers tonight in the race. I am a weeknight warrior, Saturday was OK on Mt. Evans but tonight in a full-on downpour I rode it like I wanted to. Not since some races eons ago in the East have we had these conditions, it's overused but I suppose you could saddle it with that word, alright I guess I'll use it...epic. Weather that makes you question everything, thunder and lightning too close, ride faster and hope you aren't in the bolt's path. I managed to burp a tire and not lose too much air/time and without a CO2 it was limp in and enjoy the earned hypothermia. High point of 11,129 feet, in a weeknight race. Pretty cool.
