Dead Dog Stage Race

A good portion of the team went to Wy this past weekend for the Dead Dog stage race. this is a killer 3 stage race in 2 days. The RR ascends to about 10,000’ in elevation over the first and second climb. And if you not climbing or descending at 57 MPH the wind should keep you plenty busy! The crit course is flat and fast but again the wind makes things interesting and the tight left right dog leg on the back side will be sure to keep you attentive and with a highest flat TT (at 9,000’) starting 2 hours after the finish of thee crit, energy is used wisely.
It was a fun time staying with the team. lots of fun was had. It was Andy’s B-day and we celebrated with some port and wine. The food was great all around Laramie and the night life was… much better than excepted. MUCH better, as Andy found out with at least one phone number. Not kidding.
Race reports soon.

And a few memorable moments…
