Well I've been back home now for two days.
I had the luxury of staying in the Denver and Colorado Springs area for a few days after finishing up the USA Pro Challenge Race Experience. During that time I was able to spend some time with my wife who came out to join me for a few days, get some work done, and do a little more riding.
Stages 4 through 7 of the 2013 USA Pro Challenge were awesome!
Stage 4 was the ride from Steamboat Springs to Beaver Creek. It was 103 miles of some fun ups-and-downs that included Bachelor Gulch. Unfortunately for me, I started the day with an upset stomach. I think I had a little too much Sriracha Sauce on my rice at breakfast and my stomach was not happy. This made for a tough day on the bike as I really couldn't eat at all during the ride or drink too much water. I was really happy for the day to be over and I was really hoping that I wasn't getting sick!
