Mt. Evans Hill Climb

45th Annual Bob Cook Memorial,
benefiting Amgen’s Breakaway from
Cancer, provided a pleasantly cool

The race was tactical from the start

Overend held onto Stetina's wheel
long enough to distance himself
from the rest of the pack. Peter
Stetina accelerated again and
dropped Overend with a few miles
to go and finished in 1:50:20
Overend was 1:51:40 and Phil

Personally, I prefer the extensive selection of trails to the long
stretches of uphill dirt roads but I got an excellent workout
anyway. We rode about 32 miles and gained 4,011’ in eleva-
tion when it was all said and done.

This trail system includes a 3+ mile steady climb on single-
track to the top of Morse Pass, the usual spot for a quick
break. From here, the downhill is a coupla loose, rocky and

on July 9th, 2011.

The Tour de France did not fail to provide us with an excit-
ing race that kept our motivation high in the final days of
training for the Triple and beyond. Let’s hope Lance makes
a successful transition into the next phase of his life – a
true sign of success! It is hard at this point to imagine him
pursuing a quiet, more private life. While his star power
prevails, this year the Tour introduced us to many emerg-
ing riders that will undoubtedly provide us with excitement
for years to come!

As we transition to August and feel the power of our riding
propel us through the plains, up the foothills and over
mountain passes, thank you to everyone who rides a bicy-
cle and drives a vehicle for the effort to share and get
along on both the roads and trails.
