Back in January, my dear friend Roberto Caligaris from Italy sent me a bike jersey he earned after riding the famous Maratona dles Dolomites bike race. I knew I would have to do something special the first time I wore this jersey to honor such a gift. The only fitting ride would be to climb to the summit of Mt. Evans, the highest paved road in America. The 14 mile climb would have been too short if I started at the bottom, so I started in Denver, 64 miles away and rode up hill for 9 hours till I made it to the top. The way home only took 3.
