leadville picture day
August 12, 2008
It’s late, today will have to be picture day, I’ll try to make a video for Thursday or Friday.
At the Overlook Hotel, Friday morning, trying not to seem like we care about the race.
You just can’t beat swag like this. Yellow BAGS?! Sweet!
Holly, Kim, Shelle, ready to crew.
A prayer flag, with its priorities straight.
Friday rec ride, group shot.
The womenses at the lake ride:
Elden has very particular needs from his crew:
Race day, 5:30am, staying loose.
Ready to go
Um, wait, do-over please:
And they’re off, for real:
The crew waits at Twin Lakes
Sam gets crewed
Brad with his game face
Rick enjoys the finer things
Elden relays instructions to his crew
And the crew responds
Here comes Paco
I get crewed
“Seriously, you’ll thank me later . . . “
The only existing picture of Bob on race day (sorry Bob, we all get a de-merit)
Kenny gets a nice welcome
Sam seems pleased with his 8:47. Doper.
Here’s the evidence:
Holly rewards his performance
Rick and Brad leave a manly space between them, so as to avoid hugging
Yay Rick (broken chain and all)
But what he really wants to know is, did Sam do it? (he did, the freak)
Brad might be tired
Elden’s crew, Kim, welcomes him back
Nick and Sarah
Not sure who’s happier, Kim or me
Sam is not happy I just took his diet coke. But I’M happy.
Elden hung around in his stinky clothes waiting. He gets a merit.
The last time you’ll see me on the finishing lawn. Yay.
Lance with his weird Svengali Man-Servant
And, a preview of the race video:
