Famous people

I used to have posters of Bobbi Bensman (among other climbers) all over my walls in high school. And yesterday, I actually met her – pretty cool. She’s an enduro mountain bike racer now and even knew who I was. Pretty exciting, at least to a former climbing geek like me.

Forecast for tomorrow’s WP race is 45 degrees and rain. And that’s at the base – the race is up over 10k feet the entire time. Can you say “epic”? Alternately, can you say “Walt is so screwed, because he can’t ride mud to save his life”?
