Yellow Cholla Blooms
Yellow blooms on a cholla provide a beauty to contrast the pain it caused tens of riders who end up rolling into the cholla that lines the race route. In one story from this race, a professional rider was unhappy about having to compete in this ride, and was letting everyone know of his displeasure about contract that forced him to ride out here. Sure enough, when he later hit a cholla, and got his own personal piece of the desert.
