Before leaving for the Mets/Diamondbacks game yesterday, I spent some time downtown watching the Tour of the Gila. A 5-day stage race that comes to Silver City each year, a crowd favorite is the Saturday Criterion: 40 laps around a downtown loop (fewer laps for non-pro divisions).
More photos below. I wasn’t able to stay for the women or the pro divisions, but Meredith was on hand, so you should run by her Flickr place to see pics from those events. She also has some great shots from the kids’ races.
Anyhoo, here’s the rest of my photos from the event. As always, click for larger versions and for descriptions.
