Grey and Orange Sighting

I was on a historical tour of Leadville in a locamotive "bus" this afternoon winding its way around the town through Millionaire's Row, the Churchs, the buildings to support the mining industry from 1860 - 1982. The engineer tooted his horn, chimed his bell and waved to the many friends along the route. We stopped along Sixth Street headed towards Harrison for a detailed explanation of the surrounding mountains, towns, passes. The rider came up the hill fast. I noted the Orange and Grey colors of the Smith & Nephew kit that Floyd Landis is sporting these days. It was 1:00 pm. It remains to be seen if Floyd is out for the top 10. Dan Wiens came in at 7 hours 13 minutes in the 2006 Leadville 100 which would put the finish time at 1:43 pm. When and where did you start your training today Floyd?
