So, I’m super slow on my updates from Telluride, but here’s day two. Day three should come a bit quicker as there isn’t as much to talk about. And incase you hadn’t ready or already forgot, here’s the day one recap.
Evan and I had a low-key Friday evening, which is usually the case on racing weekends and I’m totally fine with it. Since we were to bed early, we were up early even though we tried to stay asleep as long as possible. Before anyone else was really up Evan and I wandered town a little bit.
No wonder through town is complete without a visit to Baked In Telluride. Such freaking amazing baked goods. We both got morning sweet treats. A Buttermilk Bar for me and a Fruit and Cheese Danish for him.
After our breakfast sweet treat we made and actual breakfast of eggs and sausage then it was time for riding bikes!
I jumped on the gondola and hit-up registration to register for Sunday morning’s super d, then got a few tips on a cross-country ride.
My ride was really mellow, but super fun. I hit the Jurassic trail, Meadow trail, Galloping Goose, and Valley Floor. None of these trails were very technical or even aerobically challenging, but boy were some of them turny, narrow, and fun!
I was headed back toward town on Valley Floor, but wasn’t really ready to be finished riding, so I pulled out my phone and looked up a ride that Evan had gotten from a buddy. I jumped off Valley Floor right near Mill Creek road and started climbing.It rained hard and the climb was extremely steep and rocky. I wasn’t making much progress, so I opted to turn around and head back toward town.
Post-ride I changed quick, did some work, then headed off to watch Evan race Super D. He did it on his downhill bike and killed it! We hung for a bit after and then returned to the condo for a late night dinner.
