    The TT was Classic, The Circuit Race was the best of the Roubaix and the hill climb was excellent. Maybe a little easier climb next next time to get the non climber in the race and give them a chance to be competitive.

    I'll give my personal reasons for not racing.

    1) TTs require a full-blown TT rig to be competitive any more, and I don't want to spend the money for a bike that gets raced a few times a year.

    2) Dirt circuit race. I'm just not into racing on dirt roads. I know it's the hottest thing lately, but there are plenty of early-season races and cross races for that.

    I'll put my hard-earned cash on races I want to do. I certainly appreciate that WOL put on a stage race and the racers enjoyed it.

    I'm a native Coloradan and grew up in Area Code 303, Boulder and Longmont. Thanks to the Interwebs, it's actually 34.8 miles and between 49 and 56 minutes away from Boulder. Golden is closer at 21 miles, but would you consider going there for the 2nd or 3rd stage of the Boulder Stage Race? I know, it's all semantics, but if you have a Carter Lake Stage, why not call it something like the Front Range Stage Race? Just throwin' ideas out there.

    No, Jon... you have it wrong. Those who attend races they don't like, without making any comments, THEY're the problem as it tells promoters it's okay to put on crap races without fear that folks won't show up.

    You do realize that Carter Lake is less than 20 miles from Boulder, don't you?

    Closing roads, are you talking about Bolder Boulder?

    There is always that group that won't be happy.

    Had them a $100 bill and they will complain how is was folded.
