Giro del Trentino

 

are they gaining on me?

are they gaining on me?

 One of the most beautiful rides of my life, but I missed my teammates, especially Brian!–needed him to pull me through.  I got a two-hour headstart, and the boys still caught me on the final grade up to Pompeago, where my tired legs finally gave out after about 100km of climbing.  Still, I was the first one over the GPM mountain at Vigolo Vittaro, thanks to my headstart.  [ More photos]

Venerdi Santo (Good Friday) in Lucca, then Pasqua in Firenze at the Duomo, where we met Larry & Victoria after the fireworks and worship. Then we stayed with them in Cortona, under the Tuscan sun, of course.  Wow! What a beautiful place.  More Photos
