hbstache Post TDF case of the Munnndays. As someone obsessed with the cobbled classics, I am so glad Nibali seized that opportunity and used it win the TDF. He trained on the cobbles, and rode them like a true FLAHUTE. 10h

hbstache My take on The Colorado Rapha Gentleman's race. As we approached Switzerland Trail and reality of missing the time cut sank in, I started to reflect. I then said fuck reflection right now and went full BTFU concentrating on that climb. It was the best I felt all day, only making it harder to realize at the top our "race" was over. I was and still am gutted about not finishing. I want another shot at it! In my mind I was ready to turn myself inside out on Lick Skillet. I have always ridden it on a road bike & never not cleaned it...I was saving a bit for that steep bastard. The last 2 months have been hard on me...lots of physical and emotional things popped up... I did the work, managed through the pain of the labrum tear and wanted to do every last mile. It didn't happen and this is life and the RGR.
My takeaways:

1. Crazy hard course that challenged everyone that attempted it. It hurt the fastest and slowest riders in the event. Suffering was a fact!
2. I thought I had taken my road bike to do some harry shit...but, Switzerland Trail was like the Forest of Arenberg + Carrefour de l'Arbre back to back.
3. It's on the Team Captain...or most of it. If there was a mechanical, crash or a completely unexpected bonk maybe not.... If communication was lacking or the team dynamics or team choice was wrong it's on the Captain. Sucks to say that, but it's the TRUTH. As a Capt. of a DNF squad I'm having to process that and let it soak in.
4. A-Game only! If you didn't bring it, you suffered and your team did too.
5. I saw amazing team moments of people pushing teammates, real emotions coming out later as they missed the cut. It wasn't life or death but in that moment it mattered.
6. People were working ALL DAY. Photo & Video crews, support cars, medical and organizers...so we could ride bikes. THANK YOU!
Lots of attempts yesterday to Carpe That Fuckin Diem

hbstache Reached into the closet, this seemed to be the right one of our tees for day after #rgr . Each team had a unique event to themselves and each learned some truths (some were good & some were not) Well done @rapha_n_america @rapha_mcctillie @skratchlabs for an amazing event! 1d
