Bicycle Racers Tough It Out In Tour Of Galena

Hard core bike racers from all over the Midwest braved brutal temperatures and some sadistic hills to compete in the Tour Of Galena this weekend. My law firm was a proud sponsor of the event.  I was out there on Friday to take in the action.  Arriving early at the start/finish for the elites race I decided to ride the course on my heavy-as-hell Surly Long Haul Trucker.  The ascents on the 8 mile course nearly gave me a coronary.  The descents were plain scary.  The elite men circled the course eight times; the women six.  They have my respect and admiration.  Enjoy the photos below.  Click here to see race results for the entire weekend.
