July 14, 2011

Dear Snowcatcher,

We have had many requests to put up the "entire" list of times from the 2010 Assault. And we need your help because we do not have your final time!

We are quite sorry our results were incomplete last year, and we have done a number of things to ensure that doesn't happen in 2011. If you happen to know your time at the summit please email that info along with your name. If you don't remember, maybe you can tell me who you may have finished with or near. Any info will help us rebuild the COMPLETE list. We understand some of you may have not finished, but if you can send me an email letting us know where you may have turned around, we can verify the information we do have. We will do this on the honor system.

All the best and hope to see you on the road!

Good morning! You picked me up half a mile from the summit, perhaps three minutes after the cutoff. I was the Last Rider on the Road. :(

It was very exciting to see the ride listed in Bicycle Colorado News this month!

I remember well. I hope your cycling season has gone well this year. Look forward to seeing you again this year....at the summit. (I won't be driving support. I will be at the top all day!)

Good Luck!

  1. I really, truly wish I could ride this year's Assault with you. We'd rock it (slowly, steadily, tenaciously).

    I guess you'll have to do all the rockin' for now, but you can't count on me to be cheering. Loudly.

  2. Ti, I can't think of anything better than trying to make it up Pikes Peak alongside you (although I know beyond a shadow of a doubt you'd have NO problem!). Maybe next year??? (Did I really say that??? Did I really commit to doing this AGAIN?!?!)

    By the way, LOVE your new avatar!

  3. I hope you reach every peak you want to climb.
    I have come down with a dreadful summer cold. But I can only get better from here :)

  4. I have butterflies in my stomach for you. But in a good way. How exciting this is! Thanks for letting us share the anticipation.

  5. Thanks so much for your sweet compliment about my work. I love this lovely crochet work. those pictures are really so wonderful. I love them all, and love your blog too.

  6. Well after emails like that, you just have to summit :) I'm sure you will nail it, how frustrating to be a few minutes off. Mucho respect from this on-the-flat only cyclist
