After a series of uneventful flights I’ve arrived in Silver City again. It’s been a while since I’ve been here, Silver City actually brings back a lot of memories from the beginning of my affiliation with Slipstream Sports. The training camp last year was here, and although it seems like it was some time ago, it’s been just one short year. I’d forgotten that we stayed at this holiday inn until I got in & each hallway was too familiar to be true.
I’ve never done this race, but I’ve ridden each road and climb at least a dozen times. Not to mention that in the last three days the Gila team and I have climbed over 28,000 feet. With Gila’s status as a climbing race there’s no excuse for 2nd.
