    ""Seeing major entry fee inflation this year.""

    That is what it costs to run a RR in Boulder County.

    If you are such a budget racer then stick to Wed nite parking lot crits. Wait, there isn't even that anymore.

    It is about time bike racing entry fees have gone up. Look at tris and MTB or Mudders or.....

    There aren't any REAL stage races left.

    Thanks to all involved for bringing stage racing back to the front range. The race courses were interesting, diverse, and catered to all different kinds of talents. The P-1-2 GC lead changed after every stage, which shows that every stage was selective and relevant. The GC was ultimately won by the best all-around rider, which is how a multi-day race should be. Finally, thanks to the organizers for incorporating a big climb into a stage race. We have mostly flat and rolling races on the local scene, and too few climby races (other than the pure hill climbs, which only attract the specialists). I will do this event again.

    Curious why make it a stage race and not omnium? I agree that more people might have signed up for just the HC on Sunday if that was an option. The omnium format seems to work well for Superior. I did appreciate they allowed people to continue on to the next stage if they had a legitimate mechanical incident - it's a bummer to end your stage race on day 1 when you flat in the TT.

    Damn you Boulder County for not building new roads for original course in the last 25 years. Don't you know how important us road racers are and that main streets should be shut down for very important racing. Loved the overall event; best TT in the state IMO, the best part of the Roubaix course, and a real hill climb. Love it and thank you for taking a chance on a cool new concept event.

    Like I said before, the race lacked originality and a road race, but....it was still a local race and I race bikes soooo I attended and actually had a pretty fun overall experience. The rest of you yahoos who didn't attend are the PROBLEM not the SOLUTION

    Thanks to BRAC/USCF Moto official Michael Christopher! That Christopher family is a great asset to our cycling community.

    Far from true if you've been around long enough. They created the new morgul bismark time-trial course, the CYCLO-X Sienna Lake Course, and not to mention everyone of their XTERRA's is a brand new creation. If you remember they also experimented with the cyclocross relay race and elimination format a few years back (non USAC/BRAC). Last time I checked their prices for all their races were right in line with every other event in Colorado, including cross where their production level is far and above the competition. Paul you sound line a whinny promoter who can't compete. Directing an event in Boulder is by far the most expensive in the area, just look at the Daily Camera article where Grealish bitched and complained about the rising police costs for Roubaix this year. They took a chance on a stage race, and kudos for actually putting something on the calendar and NOT cancelling like so many club and promoters in this state.
