Silver City: Jan 18th
Silver City, NM
Jan 8th – Jan 22nd
It's amazing to see that the racing season has already began around the world with the Tour Down Under (Australia)- a race that's rated the same as the Tour de France UCI 2.HC! Robbie McEwen, the guy who won the Green Jersey last year in the TDF, is there racing. That's a super early start, he'll be racing until September or October, crazy! But then again I too may be...
So, Silver City has taken a bit of a turn over the last couple days. Monday it was sunny n' nice, & Tuesday it was mid 20's and snowing... hmm I guess it's got something to do with the altitude. We did a ride in the morning and afternoon, it was freezing, & it reminded me why I live in Washington- I definately prefer the rain to the cold. I've heard of people growing webbed toes, & I've heard of eskimos, & I've gotta say that I'd prefer the webbed toes to the extra layer of blubber.
I guess life flies by when you sit on a bike and stare at the wheel in front of you for five hours, because its already been ten days since I left home. It seems like it's been two or three, but I guess that's life on two wheels... I leave from Albuerqurque on the 23rd, so my departure from the homeland swiftly approaches.
