First off, our host house ruled. The view was so pretty.
Not a bad view for our host house Bulls (actually steers but bulls sounds better).
Day 1 brought a ride up Independence Pass- a must do when in Aspen. Swanny Mike, me, and Rider Who Shall Remain Nameless made it to the 48 degree and raining top. It was a chilly ride down to the coffee shop.
Day 2 was a ride with ALP Cycles Coaching athletes Kelly and Cat, and a pre-race dinner put on by Snowmass that The Mom and Dad came to as well. Good times.
Day 3, race day. Despite being only a 4 corner crit, it was fun. We raced hard, we raced well and I got second place. Bonus of the day was the Powers cheering section of The Mom, The Dad, The Sister and Niece J.
Post Aspen, we even took 3 more NOW roadies on the steel*wool ride.
Yes, Aspen was super fun, but coming home to JH and silly friends is still the best.
