Joe Martin is Finished, We're Rocking Gila

The Joe Martin Stage Race finished with Alison Powers from NOW and Novartis for MS 2nd place overall, just behind Claudia Haussler of Tibco.  Tibco raced an excellent race... we still wanted that win though.
Alison Powers 2nd and Lex Albrecht 5th overall in the Joe Martin Stage Race (Claudia Haussler from Tibco won)
Right after the conclusion of the final stage, we jumped in the Ford van and C-Max hatchback and started the long drive to Silver City New Mexico for the 5 stage Tour of the Gila.  A tough race at altitude.

We're in the middle of the race, but this morning is an extra special day.  It's my teammate's birthday.  Happy Birthday Olivia Dillon!  We went out for a fun coffeeshop ride this morning before our afternoon criterium.

Coffeeshop ride to flush out the pistons before the stage 4 afternoon criterium.  NOW and Novartis for MS enjoying  downtown Silver City New Mexico.
Two Stages left to go.  Alison Powers (NOW and Novartis for MS) is sitting in 2nd overall behind Mara Abbott of Exergy 2016.  Katie Donovan and I (NOW and Novartis for MS) are rounding out the top 10, but our whole team has our work cut out for us to get Alison to the top step.
