Thursday afternoon

This morning we were on a tour at the Newmont Phoenix Mine, which is located off the 305. We recieved a vial with some gold flakes. The mine has a height difference from top to bottom of about 400 meters. Enormous dump trucks with tires as hight as 3,5 meters drive around. Impressive to see.

We are getting the bike ready for tonight. The brakes have been taken care of, they were a bit loud yesterday evening. And some sanding. We practiced starts at the parking lot of the hotel on Sunday and dropped the bike once.
