Vuelta a Salida announces changes in course, welcomes title sponsor.
Littleton, CO. The Vuelta a Salida 100 Mile fondo style event slated for August 17th, 2013 starting and ending in downtown Salida CO will now be known as the Prestige Imports Vuelta a Salida. After stepping in last year as a supporting sponsor, the organization has increased their commitment to title status. Spectrum Marketing's Rob Quinn comments " Prestige Imports has been one of the most visible sponsors of cycling in the Front Range, when General Manager Justin Adis said they would like a greater level of involvement next year, we were able to work out the naming rights".
The Prestige Imports Vuelta A Salida will include Cotton Wood pass in the 100 mile route. Quinn comments " Cottonwood is considered one of the best climbs in the state and we'd be remiss not to share it with the riders. It will make for a tougher century that's for sure".
If that sounds like too much the 50 (actually 58) will be stretched to 60 and proved itself a worthy course, especially with the final climb into town.
The 2013 event will also feature a 25 mile course known locally as "The Triangle" and a "Fast Fun and Free" kid's race.
The Prestige Imports Vuelta a Salida is a "fondo" styled event which means that all riders receive a finisher's time and the top 3 males and females are recognized with a trophy. Rules of the road apply but uniformed law enforcement can wave riders through intersections at their discretion.
