Ivy, Caleb Craft (the new fast guy) and myself are heading to sunny Phoenix AZ to race the Valley of the Sun Stage Race. So excited...and very nervous!!!14.2 mile TT, RR, and Crt. About 750 riders signed up. Caleb is in one of two Cat5 fields of 50. Ivy's field will be about 50 and mine will be 52 incuding the Cat 3 women - a much better size for me than the 80+ of last years field.
Ivy flew to Tucson on Sunday - her bike transported by Andrew Genco (thanks, Andrew). She reports the weather is sunny and warm. Rode a bit yesterday - not booties - short finger golves - short sleeve jersey. I can't wait.
We packed up Caleb's Subaru this morning and he is off. 4 bikes, butt load of wheels, trainers, pump, more wheels, food, tool bag (not that i know how to use it much)....and a good book on tape.
I fly out at 6:30am tomorrow.
Stay tuned...more pic's and updates to come.
