Yeah, ain't technology grand? I'm planning to go watch it live and cheer the Rams on. Hopefully someone will capture the stream and post it to YouTube.

race starts in 3 hrs. Forecasted 15mph winds are now 25mph gusting to 35. Wind is from the NW which means the first couple climbs will have huge tailwinds, so the race is going to explode. My prediction: we have it down to less than 40 guys (from 129) by the time we get to the Masonville loops, 1 hr in.

Palookabutt - will you be at the crit tomorrow?

Colorado State, green and gold kits, white helmet, orbea. I'll be our second call up since we also have the conference champ who gets a front row call. Though you won't see me at the front until the last couple climbs

Tomorrow we'll be in white/green/gold long sleeve skinsuits

I'm planning on it. I'll probably watch at the reservoir today, then follow the pack to Masonville.

Couldn't tell who finished first. Streaming video is kind of like watching one of those African safari documentaries filmed from an old Land Rover.

Anyone know what Ze's plate number is? Looks like CSU did pretty well.

made the front group over the dams, got into a bunch of good splits but nothing stuck. Missed the split that did stick, and we had two guys in it so we didn't chase. Tried to bridge once, didn't make it.

Cramped like crazy coming up the last climb, finished somewhere in the 20-50 range. No idea where. Not sure why I cramped either...

Jamey Driscol and Will Duggan, both from UVM, took 1st and 2nd. Jamey took a flyer at 3 miles out and held it.

Definitely brutal. The race was down to 50 within the first 30 minutes.
