I have mentioned before that Lance and his dad and their friend Sam have been training for a 206 mile bike ride that went from Logan to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. 206 miles sounds like a lot, but let me tell you, it is so much more than it sounds. This race is crazy! I didn't really understand it until we were there, watching them climb ridiculous hills, watching people dropping out all over the place and really understanding that it takes all day long to complete! And even though Lance didn't train nearly as hard as he would have liked, he killed it, coming in 11th place in his category. I am so proud of him!
Lance and his dad the morning of the race.
There were 4 feed zones where family was allowed to meet their riders to replenish food and water.
You can't tell from the picture but they were crazy. Your rider comes in, you scramble to exchange
everything and then they are off! Then you jump in the car to meet them at the next stop. It's really exciting.
Loading up his pockets with food :)
The support Crew! We took the RV and had a blast following our riders from stop to stop.
Lance crossing the finish in 11 hours 17 minutes!
Scott crossing the finish line!
My uncle Alan was also in the race for the second year. He finished in about 10 1/2 hours!
It was great to spend some time with Aunt Kate and Uncle Alan.
It was extremely emotional when he finished. He was able to accomplish something that was extremely difficult that he has worked very hard towards.
So proud of him!
