Good ride today on fairly level roads until we got past Revelstoke. That's were the climb begins into the Rogers Pass. The weather was great all day!
We had our first crash on route to Canyon Hot Springs one of our Australian riders, Joe, a 60 year old school principal got too close to a the rider in front in a pace line and crashed. He suffered a bad ligament tear of the shoulder and that put him out of the tour. I saw Joe as he picked up his gear at Canyon Hot Springs and he is OK but sad to leave that tour. He was a class act. Second to this is that Greg his buddy only came on the tour to ride with Joe so now he is a little lost but a gamer and will finish the tour I am sure.
