Tucson Camp Day 1 (and a bit)
Hot and Dry! The training has begun here in the desert. We have a small group of athletes already here already with more arriving Tuesday and Friday. Yesterday was a short 40 minute run in the morning followed by an easy spin in the afternoon to the base of Mt Lemmon. Today we did an early ride through town and up and over Gates Pass where we ran into Pat Kelly and the NTC gang doing a time trial up the steep side of the pass. Well done guys!! This afternoon was another run out through the desert with a few athletes deciding to take short cuts through the cactus (as you can see the short cuts ended up providing a few short cuts). Now it is time for a Fat Tire Ale and a little bit of rest.
