One of my goals lately has been to use up things we have. We came home from Breckenridge and unpacking the cooler to look in the fridge I see a packet of corn tortillas that definitely needed using.
The resulting enchilada lasagna: Buffalo/kidney bean/carrot/celery w: thai chilli sauce and lime juice. Layered with Corn/Greek yoghurt/ cherry tomato/ lime and cheese topping. Turned out great: Entirely from the depleted fridge/cupboard!
Wow... so the Breckenridge Firecracker 50 race was yesterday. Me? I am right now officially fried! Realising this somewhat before the event on Friday morning and confirming it about 5 mins up Boreas pass: It hit hard and went somewhat along the lines of: my legs feel flat, I feel really hot, man everyone is riding superfast today, is that a headwind. I need to change down a gear, oh oh 10800 feet of climbing to go? phew its going to be a long 5 hours!
But: you know what even an uncomfortable 5 hours on a bike is really still a pretty great situation. What else would you want to do? (Other than - Lie in the creek alongside the trail... it was making me salivate all that cool crisp sparkling running water...)
Congrats to a strong and deep women's field! Sari Chalk for ripping it, Gretchen Reeves too and Jennifer Gerbasch for a performance that's been building.
The men's race was crazy! crashes, mechanical, drama.... Brian was crashed out at 15 Min's but pulled off a lap getting into 4th - prior to flatting and being unable to re-air his tire.
More drama ensued and at the end of the day Jeremiah Bishop pulled through to a win... even he didn't know he had. Crazy!
Heres the Velonews report: http://velonews.com/article/79312
The Trek boys had a good day with JB 1/Kelly Magelky 5. Zack Vestal 1st in 30-34 again, Charlie Hayes in 2nd single speed... Caitlyn Tuel pulled an 8th in the women's - nice one -to round out my 4th.
I think at the end of my day - I got disqualified though as being a non American I apparently should have raced in the Maverick -field rather than in the Pro women's field.
