Stampede Road Race.

Well, Speed Theorists were well represented yesterday at the brutal Stampede Road Race. The course is always underestimated as there are no huge climbs, however there is rarely a flat section, it's always really hot, and the 5 laps (120km total) make for a tough count down.

We had:
Alex (A-Train), Rod, and Trev competing in 'Elite'
Kirk and Carl competing in 'Master A'
Paul competing in 'Master B'

TRS friends included Steve, Jared, Frank, and Carson
and a surprise showing was Don 'The' King riding for Bowcycle.

So all in all, we had our classifications covered.
Full results here. Some results are a little messed up, as Paul didn't DNF.

A tough day was had by everyone, but I'm pretty sure we all had a great time. Extra congrats to Alex and Rod for toughing it out and finishing the lapped course solo in the heat. That takes some mental fortitude!

Rob was a no show. But he was probably laying in a strange bed wondering how he was going to explain his new tattoo and his Stampede petting zoo 'incident' to his wonderful bride to be.

Next up on the calendar is Canmore Provincial ITT and TTT.

The photos were taken by Robert Haslam of the Crankmaster. These were taken on the South East corner (Start line).

Woohoo! Congrats boys. Uh, sorry I wasn't there but my legs were not functional until noon. In fact, I was in the fetal position most of the day.

Damn Tequila.
