More 2006 Tour of Utah

Posted by on Aug 13, 2006 in Bike | No Comments

The last couple of days have been busy. I spent Friday up at the OR show, and then that evening I watched the circuit race through downtown Salt Lake. The race was stage 5 of the Tour of Utah. Today I rode my bike with Keith up to the summit of the Alpine Loop ahead of the peleton riding the brutal Stage 6, the last of the Tour. Check full race results here. It was fun to see the race in the mountains. Overall I think the tour was a great success. It caught the attention of a lot of people that I think previously thought cycling, and cyclists were just another thing to get in the way of their H3’s on a Tuesday morning commute. Maybe now they will slow down, move over, and wave instead of speeding up, reving the engine and flipping us off.

Enjoy some photos from the last couple of days worth of racing:

    I sure do 😉

    Adam, great to meet you and thanks for the help at the show. I think we made quite an impression on a lot of retails and media folk with the packs and especially the solar panels. Imagine a heated or cooled pit tent for the 24s as well as your own charging station…all solar powered!
