Another day at the Gila
Jon had been having trouble with his TT bike and it gave him some trouble on the course as he finished much slower than he should have. The rest of the team did about as they expected.
Greg Krause came in second in the cat 2 group and was notified today that he just has to fill out an on line form to get his cat 1. Congratulations to Greg.
Joan did her first ever time trial as a cat 4 with the cat 3/4s and did great. She came in 15th. Congratulations Joan.
The boys wanted an early dinner, so we hit Jalisco's at 5. The waitress took Jon's order wrong so his meal was comped along with 4 orders of sopapillas. Wm enjoyed chatting with their host, Rich, who provided their housing.
5 was a good time to go out as many other teams came later and had to wait a long time. I think Axel Merkx, such a tall guy, and his entire Trek-Livestrong team, including Taylor Phinney had to wait at least 1/2 hour. That team included today's stage winner Jesse Sergent. They were still waiting when we left, but I got the impression that they cleared our table of 8 in about 1/2 a minute and then seated them.
