    USA Pro Cycling Challenge - Tour of Colorado

    Okay, so I am opening myself up to the ire of Hybrid Bike riders who believe that wearing spandex is a crime. However, I have recently started Road Biking and enjoy watching these guys make it look easy. And yes, I am biking at faster than 15 mph, and no I am not blood doping.

    I was hoping BMC would have a better showing with Tejay, Cadel and Hincapie there. I aspire to own a BMC Roadracer if I stick with it.

    Even though I hate most road bikers with a passion, it was pretty cool to see about 2.5 million dollars worth of bikes in downtown Durango yesterday. These guys are however awesome, which I assume is mostly due to the large amount of PED's in their system. I think they averaged 26mph yesterday, which is incredible.

    Re: USA Pro Cycling Challenge - Tour of Colorado

    Years ago we went to watch the "Coors Classic". Drove to the top of the pass between Copper Mountain and Leadville and watched them ascend. IIRC we watched them in Vail the next day, I had forgot all about that until you brought it up, great memories.
