Picture Tribute

Good luck to my Christopher on his Grand Loop race this weekend. I drop him off at the trail head in Grand Junction Friday night at 6:00 and then hope he shows back up somewhere between Monday afternoon and Tuesday evening. He is going to do awesome and I'm so proud of him. I will be coming back home between that time so I'll keep the blog updated if I hear anything new.

You've trained through heat, terrential downpours, and heavy snow. You've been more reliable than the postal service.

You've ridden big bikes, little bikes, bikes with gears, bikes without gears, bikes with brakes, bikes with...well...not so much brakes.

You've ridden alone, with strangers, with best friends.

You've won, you've podiumed, you've imploded.

You've run over snakes and prarie dogs. You've swallowed countless bugs.

Above all, you've prepared yourself more than one could possibly imagine.

Bring it on.

Bring it on-er.

I'm a bit late to the party...but this is the coolest send off I've ever seen. I hope Chris realizes how fortunate he is!
