Copper-destroy-opolis

Get out the fire extinguisher and put out the red hot Olaf. He coasted to the win at one of the toughest and most fun road races in NorCal. That descent screams! Someone tried to tell me they hated this race, but I quickly road away.... Go home buddy. Missed all the fun with a locked rear brake, thank the MAN not on the downhill or else might get a DanSmith style scar. It ended up being due to a lever slip... started to hate scram, now I love it again. ChrisD diagnosed it in two seconds... and gave me the fix, just before he heads to Roubaix to make sure his, best in the world crankset smokes em....
Lot of guys, as usual had problems, but this race is classic and fantastic, but ya gotta be fit to enjoy it. The last of the herd rumbled in.
Many many thanks to a great team move and player, Pablo Serna, he gave me his wheel on the first climb, WOW... how luches is that,.... glad it was a front, cause he's campy. I wanted to reward him and launch Nitro, but as luck has had it at this race, there was more to come after reconnecting and charging. Nitro road great again, but it's hard to hold off the 'Olaf Expres' right now. Well, good news might be he won't be at SeaPotter, and just to be different it is 30+ and 40+...OK. Not to mention the most expensive race in the known universe. why is that?..... cause they can?
Levi used it for training? WOW! this is a TdF caliber course. Guess my favorite race RdV ain't tough enough,.... no that belongs to Georgie, and he is busted up....... Go NorCal!!!!!

You were missed up there, HK. Too bad you did not get to enjoy the full suffer glory that is Copperopolis.

I'm not sure, though, that I can forgive for for deciding to do the 40+ at Sea Otter. We all know you're only 32.

At last Crapper-opolis bit me in the ass...

it was pilot error for sure. Pablo offered a lift, i rolled downhill less two spokes and got another wheel then 2 1/2 laps.
It sure is pretty out there when yur not chasing or being chased.

now back to the vino...

I've dropped the big change for the 30+, 90 minute run around LS on Friday. Let's hook up and show 'em what we got.
