El Tour de Tucson 2007

El Tour de Tucson, November 17, 2007. 109 miles around the city with full traffic control and crowd support. There were about 10,000 cyclists participating. This was my most exciting event of 2007. One hour before the start, sun barely up, and thousands of riders ready to go. An interesting thing about this ride was there were two dry river crossings where you had to walk for about 1/2 to 3/4 mile.

It was a relatively flat ride - total ascent 2,740 ft. with only a few hill climbs. Finished with the silver medal - 6 hours 33 minutes.
