So it's been done. Teva is gone and now it's GoPro's baby. The Mountain Games in Vail had a new title sponsor this year and it was the perfect match, and the crowds were ridiculously large, and the events were super fun, and this event continues to be a celebration of the mountain lifestyle of living, and there is nothing else like it in the world, and never will be. It's a crazy weekend, especially if you are working it. The Vail Valley Foundation does an amazing job of rolling through this weekend logistically, it's a daunting undertaking. And it's more about the crazy events and athletes, it's more about being able to participate for anyone who would like to. Some great surprises this weekend in the cycling venues. Erin Huck was stellar as she "upset" the defending champion, our National champ and Bronze Medalist Georgia Gould in the XC MTB race, then finished second in the TT hill climb. Howard Grotts killed it on the men's side for Specialized. Riders from Utah showed and throwed as well. But most importantly, it was a hell of a good time under amazing blue skies in Vail. Can't wait for 2014. Really. So good to see so many good friends...
