Vertical Profile of the race
Part of the fun of the race is a friendly contest to have the best team name. Some winners from past years include “Weapons of Ass Destruction” and “Ass Guzzlers”.
Our name last year and this year is “We Should Be Cyclists” because we consider ourselves skiers, don’t particularly like road biking but still beat many of the “cyclists”. Last year we ended up 2nd in the 4-person teams and 6th overall after losing a sprint to the finish with our rival 4 man team. Our time over the 240km was 7:04:56, which is an average speed of about 34 km/h with a headwind for much of the race. We will look to improve our time with this years team.
Here are some pictures from last years race.
