The big crew swap out was accomplished pretty quickly about 15 miles east of Durango. Brad, Al, Shagg, and Andy had to depart … leaving only Pete and Oum to help. But Zac, Bill, and Wilson arrived just in time, got 45 minutes of on the fly (ride?) training, and viola!! New crew.

Of course, the training really occurred over the next 12 hours as they powered over Wolf Creek Pass and pushed hard to leave those pesky climbs behind.

If you noticed the leader board, that new crew must have some good juju since Ray is now running fifth in his category, and really left behind the crowd of riders that he played leap frog with yesterday. Good job guys!!!!!

Ride Ray Ride!!!!
