Although I cannot be there, the race begins today. There were quite a few more cyclists seen about town this past week, dressed in their best kits, rolling their aero wheels and latest technology (I have seen some Di2). The Governor even gave a brief interview at the Broncos game on Saturday – this is a big deal for Colorado Springs, and seeing as this is the inaugural event, let’s hope it comes back for years to come.
UPDATE: A photo gallery of downtown Colorado Springs preparing for the event.
I’m super excited to see this. Garden of the Gods is a great place to kickoff the race.
