Already over 80º F, at 9:00 in the morning at home, in the shade but today looks to be my one best chance to see the Amgen Tour of California in person this year, so I am heading off to Palm Springs. I will be at the final climb of the stage, along Tram Way, cooking at the roadside. If I survive the desert (supposed to be around 107º F in PS) and make it home, I will have something to say about the race and the sensation of being baked alive, later tonight. Ay Chihuahua! Those poor racers are going to be melting all over the place.
