Some scenes from a nice day for the riders!
Sage country leaving Granby
Closing in on Willow Creek Pass
Vernon Smith and Paul Foley looking sharp at the pass ...
... and now it's downhill to Walden!
Then suddenly you're in North Park again
Who's that gent in the Colorado High Country jersey?
It's 2011 veteran Marcel Marion from Quebec.
Paul Foley chows down on one of Tammie Nakamura's hearty offerings ...
... while Vernon does some bike cleaning.
Emma and Jon Dixon pull in in comfy conditions after a chilly start.
