david participated in the sundance hill climb yesterday! this is a race for licensed cyclists competing for a cash prize, as well as recreational riders classified as "citizen riders". david has worked really hard this year to get in shape, and getting back on his road bike has been his favorite part.
the race began at the entrance to sundance canyon, right off the highway, and the riders climbed a total of 8.2 miles and 2,800 vertical feet of elevation to the top. david completed the climb in his best time of 55 minutes. he won a 2nd place medal for his age category (recreational riders don't get cash prizes).
there were a couple of official teams racing--it was really neat to see them in matching jerseys and riding shorts--and they all had shaved their legs!! david felt left out as one of the only guys without shaved legs.
