I would have loved
to have gone to the Firecracker 50
in Breckenridge this year, but it is not to be.
If I went, I'd want to be at my best since it is the national NORBA endurance championship, and there's no way to do that w/o going up a little early and getting somewhat accustomed to the altitude. We'll see about next year. Besides, by then, I aim to be A LOT handier on a mountain bike. ;)
So instead, the now NRC International Cycling Classic aka Superweek, is my focus. Right now we're trying to find a place where the revolution chix and myself can stay all together to give us a chance to get to know each other.
SDA.... please pop me an email [sydney dot e dot brown at gmail dot com]. I think you said you have family in the Chicago/Milwaukee area?
