Finally, after a day of talking racing and drinking Coors (because on this day, what else would you drink?) the race was on. These were only a handful of shots, taken at the final switchback about a kilometer before the summit. Still they tell a story of a long day in the saddle and don't quite convey how bad the descent into Aspen must have been. The descent back to Twin Lakes was miserably cold and rainy and none of us were in it to win it.
