Chirp, chirp, chirp

Carol "Chickadee" Chaffee's looks belie her age. The 48-year old Colorado resident bubbled with the enthusiasm of a teenager at the 7am start in Valencia. "I'm excited!" she said succinctly when asked how she felt. Seven and a half hours later she benefited from a five-mile, 6% descent. Chickadee flies downhill with the wind whistling through her helmet and a grin from ear to ear.
