    I'm amazed - weather this week has been Ideal --- Still some hope that the weather may change by Sunday.

    Looks like they're skipping Nevada and doing once up the west side for 80km and starting at 1:15.
    That makes one sprint and one KOM.

    Shortened 80 km course, straight shot along west side of the lake. ATOC support sure doesn't get boring.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    Current conditions:


    Hvy Snow

    30F
    (-1C)
    Humidity: 80 %
    Wind Speed: WSW 17 G 26 MPH
    Barometer: 29.76 in (N/A mb)
    Dewpoint: 25F (-4C)
    Wind Chill: 18F (-8C)
    Visibility: 0.25 Miles


    I don't even like driving in those conditions, much less riding a 23mm tire bike.

    You know Hampsten didn't win that stage, right?
    This is like a famous test of pro cycling history knowledge but it's also a way of trolling Dutch cycling fans who all know the answer.

    Andy always comes up because his pic looks more epic than the other guy's...

    The original plan was to head up the hill after my daughter's swim meet, but we were all pretty wiped out from getting up at O-dark-30, so we decided to see what the weather was like and head up this morning. The organizers announced a shortened stage, so we were going to go up after breakfast. When the hail started dumping, we decided against it. And finally they cancelled it.

    Glad we decided to hang out at home. That would have really sucked to drive all the way up and then find out it was cancelled.
