It never fails

It never fails, I don't know what it is but whenever I roll into Boulder, the temperature drops and the snow starts falling. Whitey informed me, as he walked in covered in snow, that last time it snowed this much in Boulder was last year when I came out with TJ and Chad for a training camp.

The drive back from Fruita is pretty easy in the Touareg, even going over Vail pass with an inch of snow on the road, and the trailer, it rallies pretty good.

Treats on the road, the natural food store in Frisco makes a mean organic carrot cake.

After driving through snow for 2 hours, Nick's mobile garage needed a good scrubdown

I just received word that tomorrow will be a trainer party because of 20 degree temps and 4 inches of snow on the ground. Now, I left Wisconsin after only logging 20 minutes of total trainer time this year, so I find it ironic that I come out here for decent riding weather and I'm called over to a trainer party. I'll have to do a little rescheduling of the training plan and see how I can get out of it.

Our temps have dropped 25 degrees too. It's unfortunate for all of us, really. It was all the way down to 55 degrees when I had to ride today! At least it was still sunny... Enjoy Boulder.

It was -25 when I went skiing yesterday morning. When I rode, my fork bottomed out from the cold and stayed there.
