Anyone checking out the action? I'm looking to be on Hoosier tomorrow and Vail Pass Friday and Denver Sunday. Great field out there this year.

maybe i should check it out. i'm still waiting for the day when jswiftcervelo is in the race! climbed with him once and we spent hours talking about cycling(when we weren't hitting the ground in white out conditions). cool kid.

and thanks for posting this link. i would never have thought to check for road closures. even that 70 one lane closure is gonna be a wicked pain in the butt

I-70 between Dillon and the tunnel was a pain today without the race. "Repaving project"

They might have been dealing with this: http://minesmagazine.com/7427/
Located about a mile west of the Eisenhower Tunnel in Summit County, the Big Bump is a perennial headache for CDOT. The dip forms in the eastbound lanes on a slope-side stretch of highway perched hundreds of feet above Straight Creek. As spring snowmelt soaks underlying layers of rock and soil, the roadbed sinks a few inches every year. When it gets bad enough, CDOT repaves to level things out, but come the following June, the Big Bump returns.


We've been fortunate to watch the Pro Challenge legs in Colorado Springs the past two years - great fun, especially around the finish line. I'm hoping they'll come back here next year.

I heard they want to tear out that embankment and replace it with an elevated roadway.
I need more dehydrogenase.

I'll be at the switchbacks of Devil's Gulch on Saturday. Riding the bike from Estes Park.

Delaying the trip out a day so I can catch the end of this. I was looking for a place to park that would be easy to have access to head out on I-70 west after the race. I'm not to familiar with downtown Denver so any recommendations to park. I was looking on Google maps on Speer Blvd just on the south/east side of the Platte River near Centennial Park / Elitch Gardens there seemed to be a lot of parking lots.
