We are still awaiting the containers with all the teams’ bikes, and final track preparation continues … so we got to meet the “Governor”!
The Uyuni Salt Flats are in the state of Potosí, and we were treated with an opening ceremonies celebration that was so lovely. We were also given a tour of the city of Potosí which exists because of its incredible silver mining operation.
The only downside of the day was that the road to Potosí is AMAZING with 100 miles of perfectly-groomed, twisting and turning road taking you through mountain passes and terrain that was like the best of Utah, but darker and full of alpaca … and we were in rental cars and not on bikes! 🙈🏍😘
