47th Annual Bob Cook Memorial / Mt. Evans Hill Climb

Another tough day of racing up to the parking lot of Mt. Evans (14,264 ft.) parking lot in 28 grueling miles of climbing with a total elevation gain of about 7,000 ft. We had a great day of racing with sunny skies and moderate winds. All of our riders had a personal best up the mountain:  Joe, who raced 35+Cat4 with a time of 2:27, Robert and David in 45+Cat4 at 2:31 and 2:49 respectively.  First timer Curry put in a great effort on his 15 year old road bike for a sub 3 hour time too.  Mix1 at the top for some recovery before heading down the mountain helped ease the pain in our legs.  Our Skeleton Performance Optics were a great help in the bright sun at so high of an elevation.   We will be looking for a medical company to be our oxygen sponsor for next year!!!
