    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.

    WOL are running the cx race on the final day of the multi-day Jeremy Powers / Fascat Cyclocross Camp because Fascat *hired* WOL to run the race. It's called outsourcing - smart businesses do it every day. Anyone who races cross (or road) in CO knows WOL consistently executes putting on more top-notch races better than anyone around. That's why people hire them to run their races - or even turn them over to WOL outright.

    Lance and Tony have bought and been given races but what races have they actually created of their own from scratch ? It seems like they are just lazy and recycling previously approved races. They do not want to do the heavy lifting required of making a new remarkable event. Next step will be they bale from USAC/BRAC to take home lots more cash? The Jeremy Powers Cross Camp in August they are running is NOT USAC/BRAC affiliated as a tester of my theory perhaps? WOL control road racing in Colorado by virtue of the volume of events they produce. They are the 800lb gorrilla that will keep raising prices. They are not bike racers

    While there may be an occassional uphill TT, there is no official 'hill climb' discipline in road cycling. Yes of course climbing plays a role in a lot of road races, grand tours, etc. But there is no Hill Climb National Title. There are road races, crits and TT. I guess somehow hill climbs got 'easy' to promote, so there are a ton of them. The idea is that if you are a bad climber, you don't do the hill climbs, I personally just find them boring, a lot of the fun parts about racing (breaks, positioning, bike handling, going fast) are thrown out the window.
