Images from the Gila Time Trial

John and Gay Fayhee of Silver City have opened up their home to my teammate Emiliano and me for the week of the Tour of the Gila. They're incredibly welcoming and hospitable but, more importantly, just really cool and fun to hang out with.

I met John when I was in town both to compete in the race and to cover the event for Mountain Flyer magazine two years ago. My editor arranged for the host housing through the event promoter. John was the editor of Mountain Gazette at the time - a superb blend of outdoorsy, mostly high-country based literary fictions and facts - and I was an aspiring writer. We've kept in touch and been friends ever since.

John's wife Gay was nice enough to come out to the time trial venue today and brave the hoopla surrounding Lance's visit to snap some photos. Much thanks for these great shots, all of which are © Gay Gangel-Fayhee.
