Saw a few people in shorts this morning, but they had pink legs!
Kind of windy, I guess March is being a lion.
Grabbed this photo of the full moon over the Mountain Thursday night.
So JB and I went to Junction. Some guy was catching us with a mile to go, so I upped my wattage and soloed to the finish with a Passed'em : Passed-me ratio of 0:0.
Blog reader Corey, from Houston, wrote to tell me he thought 90% of the road riders there were on the big three brands of Specialized, Trek, and Cannondale. I told him those were popular brands here too but it was probably only about 50%. I decided to go down South Gate and do a DiabloSpyCam for a little data aquisition and analysis.
|Is that a helmet cam?|
So that's 27 bikes from a controlled sample and the results are:
Trek: 0 (!)
I couldn't see the descending bikes from my angle so I left those out of the pool. But one guy was climbing so fast I couldn't get his photo - he was a Team Saxo Bank rider and had a follow car right behind him. Easily going twice the speed of anyone else through my little observation window. Amgen Tour of California is going to love Diablo.
