Photographer Dave Bitton and I just stopped to fill up the tank at the Shady Acres Gas and Groceries here in Green River, Utah, and noticed four very nice mountain bikes sitting outside. We went in and found team Nike sitting around eating hot dogs and fruit pies.
They seemed tired, but alert. No one else is even close to this Colorado team. They were heading up the road seven miles to get some sleep. They'll pretty much get a whole night's rest, which will give them a huge advantage over other teams still pedaling. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
