We jumped in the car and headed down to Colorado Springs for the USAFA road race on Sunday. One of the highlights was getting the chance to see the US Air Force Academy Campus, and it did not disappoint. Among the beautiful mountain scenery stood their beautiful football stadium and this amazing B-52 greeted us upon our entry.
Cat 3 race was set off at 12:05pm, and ended up lasting just under 2 1/2 hours. The format of the race set off several groups, spaced 5-10 minutes apart. So as the groups started to catch each other and/or fall behind, it became more and more difficult to tell who was in which race.
I was able to find the hubs each time he came around though, and caught him tossing his water bottle at the beginning of the third lap. He crossed the finish line with the peloton with a smile on his face, happy to have stayed on his bike and proud to have finished a strong performance!
