The Night Before the Colorado Classic
August 9, 2017 9:10pm CST
Years ago, in the 1980's, Colorado hosted a professional bicycle race called the Coors Classic. Due to insurance reasons, the race eventually folded, with no replacement. A few years ago, while he still had clout, Lance Armstrong used his influence to bring the USA Pro Challenge race to Colorado. It lasted a few years, until sponsorship pulled out. Tomorrow marks the inaugural stage in the new Colorado Classic race. Yes, we will be there. What is important about tomorrow's race is that the women are racing as well. The women's pro circuit needs all the publicity it can get. We will be there for both the women's and men's races. In the meantime, the photo is from the USA Pro Challenge a few years ago. It's a good indication of just how fast they are.

@teamfreak16 While we were driving in the mountains I often thought about the Tour de France and how fast they must have been going down some of those hills. I guess maybe they had ridden them beforehand but even so, it would have been pretty scary.
