The day started off in stunning fashion in Crested Butte, CO. With the legs being shaken out yesterday with a huge first day of pedaling to wake everyone up, it was now time to really see who was was here to race. Mother Nature greeted us with an outstanding sunrise over Mt. Crested Butte, and the coffee was actually on time today, which always makes early mornings easier to handle.
Same early start time, first shuttles loading up at 630 am, but with a lot more tired faces being seen this morning. Who recovered well last night, and who drank too much beer after a hard first day? With over 33 miles of pedaling taking place and more than 6700 feet of descending, we would soon find out.
