Cross at 9,000+ feet...

This is what cyclocross looks like at over 9,000 feet of altitude: Aspen Lodge CX! The course was super technical and fun, but rolled my rear tire off the rim twice. I popped it back on both times and nursed it through the turns and still enjoyed myself. The air was indeed rare, and the lack of oxygen sends one's heart rate through the ceiling.

Below, in the distance, that's the North East face of Long's Peak, a.k.a. The Diamond.
