Tour of the Gila 2010

When I learned a week ago that Lance Armstrong and Levi Leipheimer would return to the Tour of the Gila this year I immediately began making plans to return to watch the race as I’d had a wonderful time in Silver City in 2009. Friday morning was very cold, and the cold soon turned to snow, or rather to graupel, which is quite unusual for the end of April. After a pleasant drive to Silver City, we set up the 5th wheel at the KOA and began to make plans to watch the criterium race on Saturday in downtown Silver City. In anticipation of tomorrow’s events, here are some photos from last year:
