Durango training

May 11, 2008

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.

2008 Fort Lewis College Squawker Classic, Durango, CO


I headed down to the downtown crit today and watched the A race. 50 degrees and windy, typical spring mountain riding weather.

Dave Hagen, FLC cycling top dog, works like crazy to put on great events and run a solid race team with over 10 National Championship victories. http://cycling.fortlewis.edu/
