Tour of the Gila - anyone going?BipedZed

5 day stage race May 1-5 in Silver City, NM with an uphill TT, 3 road stages, and a criterium. Lots of climbing in the high desert.

I'm racing the 3s and wondering if anyone else is going or has been before and has any info to offer?

Have you gotten a chance to check out the routes? I think they're posted on the "Tour of the Gila" website. I'm not going, however, good luck to you in it. Stage races are fun, a five dayer has to be great!

haven't raced it but I've driven over the roads around Silver City, the only place in 40 states that the van's brakes burned.. hills not so much long as unendingly short and steep, road full of sharp turns. FWIW..
