Firebird 40 {mountain bike race}

This last weekend Donny raced his mountain bike in the Firebird 40 in Eagle, Colorado.

Since Don and Theresa (Donny’s parents) were already planning on visiting my parents in Junction we all decided to meet in Avon on Friday night to hang out before the race (and not have to drive as far in the morning)! We stayed at a hotel in Beaver Creek called The Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa. It was super nice and I would highly recommend it…to bad we didn’t have more time to enjoy it’s amenities.

Donny did a great job in his race and got 43rd place. He even got to race with Todd Wells, a mountain biking Olympian.

We watched in the feed zone and had had a line up of water and food.
