Bike Racing in Colorado
US Pro Bicycling Challenge Stage 2 begins today from Gunnison to Aspen.
Stage 3 will be the TT in and around Vail. On Tuesday they raced into Crested Butte (below).
Racers won't be speeding along on the bike above rather on carbon machines that many weekend warriors have a hard time controlling and stopping when they need to.
TTers are annoying and tend to think that "light bike and expensive gear = speed" -
Bike handling is key, then steady cadence and endurance over a long period of time.
Looking forward to the upcoming stages in CO.
