SICK Gila crit!

T-minus 11 hours until the start of tomorrow's queen stage, and I'm wired! The Gila Stage 4 Criterium just finished four hours ago, and it was a blast! SUPER windy, awesome course with a good-sized hill and fast descent, and an amazing crowd. The entire town of Silver City came out, and we wanted to give them a show. I was super happy to find my legs once more, and I made sure to spin for an hour this morning to flush them out and get the juices flowing. It's definitely nice to finally race in the afternoon instead of NINE AM.

For a full race report and some sweet pics, as well as my TrainingPeaks file from the race, check out my TwoWheelTales author page! And you'll really like this one.

I'll be writing another post tomorrow afternoon, post-Gila Monster. During the stage, check out the team's Twitter feed--Rob will be holding his phone up high to get some reception and give live updates! I've got my work cut out for me, and let's just say I'll be trying to get some serious face time for Ciclismo Racing while helping our top GC boys Ben and Rolf!
