We are going to catch stage 3, on the 20th, which starts in Gunnison, travels over Monarch pass and then goes down into Salida. It then does a few circuits through Salida, before heading back up Monarch pass for a mountain top finish. The stage is 95 miles and looks like it has over 7,000 feet of climbing. There are sprint points and money to be had in Salida as well, so viewing from in town will be fun too.
We are planning on being on top of the pass when they go by the first time. Then we will goof off for a while until they come back up the mountain for the finish. Then we will mountain bike our way down back to Salida. Then we will get drunk (responsibly drunk, we are all adults here).
Our whole crew from the shop is headed up, and the more the merrier. Unfortunately we are couch surfing ourselves, and can't really offer to put anybody up, but let us know if you can make it and we will definitely hang out and ride.
We will be back to the regularly scheduled program of fixing bikes and talking trash at the crack of 10am on Friday morning.
