I am still processing the experience of this race. It was really hard and I am still recovering from the altitude. Blocked ear canals, can't hear. I helped a racer who crashed right in front of me on the Columbine descent and rode by multiple sheriff's vehicles and first responders on the St Kevin's descent where I found out later a racer had passed away from his injuries. This race is no joke.
