good The Copper Triangle Ride 81.7 mi 05:34 14.7mph pace

The 7th annual Copper Triangle Ride - My first time . The hardest freakin ride I have ever done times 1000 . 7916 ft of climbing with this ride and my ride from home combined . This marks my longest ride with most elevation ever . Leave Copper MTN head up Fremont pass (elev 11,818) so you climb from 9200 ft base of Copper MTN over 2500 ft in 13 miles - hello this day is gonna blown my mind . Then at Leadville you take 24 right up Tennessee Pass (elev 10,424) then up Battle Mtn - steep grade for 5 miles - then up the backside of Vail pass (elev 10,666) the hardest climb last - I am humbled by the amount of effort this took . I am still coughing from working it that hard at that altitude . I was the 6th female to finish - the announcer said as I crossed the finish line - that was cool but I still had to ride home - I could go on and on about today . I gave it everything . I have nothing left . Max speed descending 49.6 mph - oh yeah baby - speed ascending ranged from 11 to 4 mph :-) I hope you guys are doing what you love today and giving it your ALL !!

    Thanks all - True on the elevation Steve - except I started this ride 9800 ft above sea level - San Diego cannot duplicate that since it is at sea level .
