A little post race beer drinking! A short cool down and then to the beer garden to watch the men.
The mens race! A great crowd!
The rest of my Vegas stay was pretty mellow. We spent a lot of the day on Thursday at Interbike and then I volunteered with Cannondale to help lead dealers on a night ride. It was a blast and I tested my new race bike for next year: the carbon Scalpel! It is SWEEEET! Got to hang out with Cass a bit too. Then Friday a.m. I met early and helped with a road ride through Red Rocks! It was gorgeous. A bit too early, but amazing. Then back to Interbike, hung out with people I knew, to bed early and then out of that hell hole! And remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...

Short hair. Don't I look 10 years younger? Don't answer that.

First stop: KRABI, or more exact, West Railay, which is the beach.
Yep, that is Tim by the pool. Where is the speedo, you ask?
Chaing Mai, although a quarter of a million people, is a 'smaller' city up in northern Thailand near the mountains. This is where we would check out some mountain biking, among other things. We flew out Tuesday and arrived by noon in Chiang Mai. Found our way to our hotel and then started exploring. We set up our mountain bike tour and visited some Wats. We really crammed a lot in in 4 days. I'll let the pictures tell the story...
Had to get massage every day...
And that night we went and saw Muuy Thai.
Literally, hanging out with them.
Wat Arun by day...
We had drinks at the highest bar in Bangkok. Not a bad view, eh?
Sunday morning visit to the Grand Palace.
Dinner with fellow ex-Lincoln HS compatriots
An uneventful but long travel day on Monday led us back to Portland and to our bikes, where we resume life and pedaling. The trip was awesome and unforgettable, but we were glad to be home.
