Made it...

Got to Palo Alto pretty late. The mechanics were still at it and my bike was back together in a few minutes. While they got after it I was handed an awesome to-go tin of pasta and salad...since I missed dinner. The Pablove crew really knows how to take care of the riders and my welcome kit had some good stuff in it, even a few things for the young guns back home. Tomorrow will start our epic journey to LA.

Stage 1: Palo Alto to Santa Cruz - 68.8 miles -  4350ft of climbing - We roll out at 9am...
