I guess I have to call it training, even though I despise formal training. Yesterday we went to ride the passes in preparation for the Iron Horse road race and crit. It was 40F at Purgatory with wet roads, Coal Bank and Molas passes were covered in clouds with fresh snow at about 9300 ft. We bailed and instead did a mountain bike tour of Durango including Animas Mountain, Test Tracks and Horse Gulch / Telegraph. Sunday was a different story with great beautiful spring weather. The Durango Wheel Club hosted training criteriums at the new Mercy Medical Center Regional hospital.
