Troy Does the Snowbird Hill Climb...again!

We thought he was nuts the first time...but now we know he's lost his marbles. Every 2nd week of August we drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon to spend a week there and there are always bikers climbing the treacherous 3500 ascent. One day i said outloud, "I would NEVER do that!" and before the words were out Troy said dreamily, "I want to do that one day." Well he surprised us all and did---which really isn't a suprise at all for those who know him well. His fan club this year included both our parents, our cute 4 kids who cheered for everyone who crossed the finishline, his devoted wife (me), and the clarke family who were also cheering on Sam, their dad. It was a beautiful day and he did amazing! 10 miles. 3500 feet uphill. 1 hour 30 min. Crazy and incredible.
