Larch Mountain

back yard 
a Cyclisme 

If you think you are a climber, and even if you are not; 
you missed it.

cool, even
on a hot day.

This sacred forest climb is one for the race journal.

Perhaps like Ventoux someone should make a pack race up this historic climb.

Bobby Dixon in his first race, Eric Lanners in his first race back from Minnesota, and Aubery Edwards in his first Hillclimb TT all marveled at the sheer intensity of such an event.

With two pros 
in the pack 
and a 
Junior National Team member 
finishing ahead of them, 
Jake was in rarified air, 
but he finished 5th on the day overall
 and 2nd in the Cat. 3s. 
Bedford was right on his wheel, 3rd in the Cat 3s.

Eric Lanners who had never been up there before 
got lost twice, coming in a respectable 55th. 
Can you believe the day he must have had? 
Poor Guy!
