Some random pix from RTR 08...note the Cottonwood pass pictures and the snowline on the descent...conditions were near perfect that day.

He had a flip flop hub. That was taken right before the descent on Dallas Divide which would have been quite a challenge on a true fixed.

I could see trying it on a SS, but I don't think it'd be worth it to have to fip that thing over all the time.

I'm guessing he rode most of it in the SS setting .

I wondered if that button was yours.

I came around you on the descent off Cerro Summit.

Too much fun. That route seemed a little more aggressive this year... or maybe I am just more out of shape.

That was the 92 mile day, right? Long day. That last 20 miles was a death march for me coming into Crested Butte. I hadn't done a ride over 50 miles all year before that. I talked briefly to Keeping up with Junior who noticed the button also.

Yep. I was in my DWC kit and hollered something about the Lounge on the way past. That DH was so much more fun with pavement.

We went out pretty hard - good push from Montrose, climbed hard, and left most of it out on the road in the first 40 miles. The other 50 were done in touring mode.

It didn't really get to me until about the last 6 miles. My feet started cramping, the headwind kept blowing... it snowballed pretty quickly. That was easily twice as long as I have spent on the bike at any one time in the last 7 months.

It's the only time I walked into the shower truck with no line all week though.

Buttons...

Yeah, my wife developed intestinal problems so dragging her in those last few miles was painfully slow. I always figured intestinal problems was c0de for tour riders that screwed up the timing of their doping plan and wanted to skip the pee test. If that was her situation then she got a bad batch of drugs because they sure didn't help her performance that day.

Pleasure meeting you. Forgot which button I was sporting that day in addtion to my sticker of Tabitha. Either:

Put On Your Big Girl Panties and Deal With It
or
Here To Annoy The Tourist

It will be a week or so before I get around to posting some pics. Took me forever on some of the climbs as I kept stopping to take pictures. What a fantastic ride!

Nice pics BJ. I actually was wondering where you were. Some had said you had posted all that could be posted and had moved to a higher level of being. Others said it was hookers and blow. I can't wait to get out there in a few weeks. Looks great.

Do the Cottonwood pass climb if you can--one of my faves ever. And the descent into BV is amazing also.

That was the last day--we were wearing the official Ride the Rockies '08 jersies. I missed out on getting some matching socks--that would have been cool.

Chain (who made the original buttons) lives in Broomfield. I've had a couple of buttons for more than a year now. :D
