The Swindlehurst Granfondo
Friday, July 15, 2011 - General
Nice Lawn So, the Swindlehurst Granfondo, no it's not a big group ride sponsored by a discount mortuary. It's the Tushar Crusher in Beaver, Utah run by Burke Swindlehurst. And that's where I am right now.

This event is a big deal and I went all in for it. I got a mountain bike with the help of Cannondale. Then I got the shoes, pedals and went tubeless, so I'm all set.

Let me clarify, when I said I'm going all in, what I meant is that I bought a bunch of stuff. The training hasn't really happened. My second ride on the bike, Wednesday, was supposed to be a 3+ hour Crusher simulator. Unfortunately, it ended with a broken derailleur hanger after 15 minutes. Long story, but I didn't crash, I just dropped my chain, WTF?

Whatever, if the views are as great as the Facebook page advertises this thing will be the next Leadville.

Just caught the "dot pro" favicon. Nice touch.
