Wednesday, Fresh legs. The-Pimp, 3-Bowl, and the Great Randini fly in. We take all of a few hours to acclimate, drink some of the great beer (nice Stout), and kit-up for the 35-mile epic of Monarch Crest to Rainbow trail.
We're also joined by Special guest rider #1, Jim Butler. A former StL resident and supa-fast dude. He's on a singlespeed, a truly bad man. The ride is stellar, and everyone on the GORC-crew nails it big-time. We had a great ride that punctuated by unbelievable views, great trail, and sunny 60-degree temps. Rain threatened briefly, but the ride was dry, and the trails were fast.
Wednesday night we headed into Salida for some fresh parts - chainring for the pimp, and derailluer hangar for Big-Pun. The evening on the town ends with Giant Burrito's at White Water Wraps in Salida.
We're gonna be ready to rock on Thursday, for legendary Trail 401 in Crested Butte!
