Out Of The Rockies
As you can see from the pictures the landscape is changing quickly as Gunnar charges from the Rockies to the high plains of Colorado and Kansas. Gunnar had to work extremely hard as he pressed on through two major climbs over the continental divide and then through Cuchara pass. Gunnar pumped over 1.6 kilometers in elevation change as he traveled over 210 miles through 4 time stations. His crew had never seen him so exhausted as he laid down at 3 in the morning but he was off again shortly before 6 am. as he pedaled his way in to the plains of Kansas. Temps have climbed above 40 degrees Celsius. At this posting he has put 194 miles behind him and wants more! Kaempa.
