  • Drummer Boy: McCabe 3:10 back
    August 17, 2018, 21:33

  • Drummer Boy: And there's Hecht passing McCabe...
    August 17, 2018, 21:30
  • Drummer Boy: There don't seem to be any time gaps posted within the course.
    August 17, 2018, 21:29
  • Drummer Boy: I really have reached a saturation point when it comes to the sound of Sherwen's voice.
    August 17, 2018, 21:25
  • Drummer Boy: Phinney 3:06 down. Injuries and accidents have been the defining character of his career. We'll never really know what might have been.
    August 17, 2018, 21:23
  • Drummer Boy: Wouldn't be surprised if Hecht catches McCabe
    August 17, 2018, 21:19
  • Drummer Boy: About 15 minutes left in this race.
    August 17, 2018, 21:17
  • Drummer Boy: OK, I was just too impatient. Plenty of coverage now.  :P
    August 17, 2018, 21:17
  • Drummer Boy: It'd be nice if the camera showed Hecht somewhere along this course.  :S
    August 17, 2018, 21:14

  • Drummer Boy: Gage Hecht is on his way...
    August 17, 2018, 21:07
  • Drummer Boy: I swear something odd has been happening lately. More and more of my typing is being taken over by weird auto-corrects that didn't use to interfere. Even across platforms.  :angry

  • Drummer Boy: "Dombrowski"
    August 17, 2018, 21:04
  • Drummer Boy: DAMN AUTOCORRECT!!!!
    August 17, 2018, 21:04
  • Drummer Boy: Joe Dombrovski takes the lead thus far.

  • Drummer Boy: Three riders left.
    August 17, 2018, 21:03
  • Drummer Boy: Zero mentions of this race. Even from Vail's most infamous cycling resident.  :-x
    August 17, 2018, 20:59
  • Drummer Boy: Still pretty much radio silence on Twitter from all the usual U.S. cycling big mouths. Same as for Utah. :slow
    August 17, 2018, 20:59
  • Drummer Boy: OK. Fastest guy wins. News at 11:00  :D :wave

  • Leadbelly: maxx chance. what a name
    August 17, 2018, 20:34
  • Drummer Boy: I bailed on the Tour Tracker. That other one works better. So strange that they have two different live links.
    August 17, 2018, 20:33
  • Leadbelly: nope :P only 10 or so riders have finished, so you havent missed much
    August 17, 2018, 20:30
  • Drummer Boy: This is a good a stage as any for a late arrival on my part. Anything interesting unfold yet?
    August 17, 2018, 20:30
  • Drummer Boy: Tour Tracer working right now, but overall the tech is not nearly as reliable as it was for Utah. Keeps on skipping around and stuttering.

  • Drummer Boy: ROKU is a TV accessory that gives you access to a ton of content.
    August 17, 2018, 20:28
  • Leadbelly: i've heard of the term ROKU, but couldnt tell you what it is. [link] works fine for me
    August 17, 2018, 20:27
  • Drummer Boy: RE: Bosco. I had forgotten that today was a TT. Good for him.
    August 17, 2018, 20:26
  • Drummer Boy: Apparently they've just introduced a ROKU for the race as well. Doesn't apply to me, but maybe it's helpful to others?
    August 17, 2018, 20:26
  • Drummer Boy: Just tuning in late because I was hoping to avoid all the mess of Tour Tracker yesterday. But already it's giving me problems.

    August 12, 2018, 20:03
  • Drummer Boy: We even hauled off enough material to build a tree fort, too.  :D
    August 12, 2018, 20:00
  • Drummer Boy: A lot of neighborhoods were being built at the time, so there were always big dirt mounds and lots of extra wood to make jumps, etc.
    August 12, 2018, 19:59
  • Drummer Boy: The fun part was that the seat was big enough for two, so my friend and I would take turns switching places. We never thought about it, but it was great training having a whole other person on the bike while bombing around all the construction sites near our homes.
    August 12, 2018, 19:58
  • Leadbelly: probably worth a bit of money one of those in mint condition
    August 12, 2018, 19:58

    August 12, 2018, 19:46

    August 12, 2018, 19:23
