Tour De Burg!

After a long 18 hr drive I arrived with time to spare before the prologue. This was no ordinary spin around the park. It was a 1200ft climb up and a sweet descent back to the bottom. I finished second to Harlan Price who had a good gap for the win. Dinner, catching up with all the east coast characters, and enjoying a couple beers capped the night.

The next day I was sore already from the 1200 ft. climb and still had 35,000 ft. of climbing to go! I had a huge mechanical on the first stage leaving me walking in carbon shoes for 6 miles which lead to the worst blisters I have ever encountered. The tour was TOUGH!!!! Painful!!! but I still can’t wait to next year. I will hopefully improve on my 3 stage victories. Sam Korber took home the yellow jersey, followed by Dirty D, and CHEF Thomas Jenkins. Also, props to Chris Scott my host, and Carp who finished out the podium.

I will write more after the Norba in NY and hopefully acquire some pics of the tour. For now here are pics in my new kits. Park Place Lexus and Orbea who I will finish out the year with. Pics from MIKE Brooks. Thanks for reading, Bryan
