Thursdays climbing stage was tough, and most of us held our position on GC. Friday was the longest stage at 78 miles with 6000ft. of climbing. We worked well together as a team, broke away with a teammate (ryan hamilton) and he brought home the victory. Photo's on the way.
Ryan is in second place on GC 49 seconds behind the leader and we're gunning for the victory on the last stage on sunday. Also, Justin is in sixth just over 2 minutes out.

Brake pad melt-down from fridays decent through the Gila national forest. I was sprinting out of every corner to keep up with my teammate Cole, who decends like a rock. We hit the bottom of the climb with a gap and started to push it and further punish the field for decending like wimps. We had it widdled down to about a 30 riders before we let up.
