Flagstaff Climb Beer Handup

I rode up the Flagstaff Climb at the finish of yesterday’s stage of US Pro Cycling Challenge outside of Boulder.  I was joined by some quality beer (Renegade Ryeteous IPA), and some friends from back in my AZ days of racing.  By the time the gruppetto approached, an Excergy rider (who I am still not sure who he is) was rad enough to take my beer hand off.  The day was killer, and my buddy Crosby summed the day up perfectly by saying, “Lance who?”

About 40 Hands

A fan of riding bikes with one gear, malt liquor, riding without knowing how many miles I’ve covered, and strip clubs that let you bring your own keg. I typically have a stupid grin on my face, it is because deep down I know that no matter what, my mom thinks I’m cool. Denver, Colorado, USA

  1. I just love that kinda shit….looks like his hand is magnetically attracted to that can.

  2. Lance who is right. I live here in CO and the vibe was absolutely unbelievable. The U.S. has some great young talent and Colorado showed its true colors once again this year. And Boulder? Holy shit what a crowd/party!

  3. Sweet – looks like it was mayhem up at Flagastaff – as it should be. Me and a buddy rode down from Berthoud to Lyons and caught the points sprint just in front of Oscars. Holy crap those guys can move.

  4. I hate Lance. Glad his lying ass is getting his just deserts. However, he did have a lot to do with that race getting started. Hopefully days like yesterday and more beer handouts will continue without him for the new generation.

  5. …a cold, refreshing beverage + quickly digested carbs…

    …obviously an intelligent choice…

  6. You won’t get that ^^^ kind of useful, real-world coverage from Ed Shultz or Chris Matthews, that’s for sure. And don’t even get me started on that Rachel Maddow feller who is just plain creepy.

  7. 40 thank you for a new post. I was sick of the circles of conversation going on for the last week. That is a sweet fucking picture.

    @Rob how did you find that article in the midst of all the bullshit on that page? Thanks and you rule for that.
