USA Pro Cycling Challenge – Stage 2

Wish I could’ve participated in yesterday’s festivities in Crested Butte!!! I bet the energy was off the charts 🙂

Today’s stage is from Gunnison to Aspen over some of the most beautiful terrain you’ll ever see!

They’re calling it the Queen stage, the “crown jewel” of the seven stages. And, no doubt, it is: my guys (Leipheimer and Hincapie) have to summit TWO 12,000-foot peaks. TWO.

For anyone who has ever tried to hike over a tall mountain, you know what a challenge one can be. But to scale two in the same day, you gotta be a certified badass. 

I hope they have a lot of beer & pizza in Aspen for these guys!
