Flagstaff Mountain Wristbands Available at Select Pick-Up Locations and at Flagstaff Access Points on Race Day for the Stage 6 Finish of the USA Pro Challenge

Boulder, Colo. (August 21, 2012) – The 2012 USA Pro Challenge is off to an exciting start, and the City of Boulder is gearing up to host the Stage 6 finish on Aug. 25 with a thrilling finish on Boulder’s Flagstaff Mountain.

On race day, spectators wishing to watch the Stage on Flagstaff Mountain will be required to acknowledge the “Code of Conduct” for access to the mountain, and a wristband reflects that acknowledgment. FREE Tyvek wristbands will be available on race day at the three access points to Flagstaff: 1) on Baseline Road at the base of Flagstaff by Gregory Canyon; 2) the View Point Trailhead; and 3) Realization Point by the entrance to the amphitheatre finish.

Additionally, advance commemorative silicone wristbands (which also provide access) can be picked up at select locations around Boulder for a $5 donation to be used for Flagstaff-related expenses.

These commemorative bands will be available beginning Wednesday afternoon at the following locations:

Boulder Cycle Sport, 629 S. Broadway (south store)

University Bicycles, 839 Pearl St. (downtown)

Bicycle Village, 2100 28th St. (by Whole Foods)

FasCat Coaching, 4550 N. Broadway, Unit C-3B (near Amante in N. Boulder)

Trek Bicycles, 2626 Baseline Road (S. Boulder)

Up-to-date information for Stage 6 through Boulder, including parking and alternative transportation and the downtown festival, is available online at www.usaproboulder.com. Updates will be continuously posted on Facebook at USAPROBoulder and via Twitter @USAProBoulder.

Boulder residents and visitors are encouraged to plan ahead to attend Stage 6. Information on road closures and event parking can be found on the Boulder Stage Interactive Map (www.usaproboulder.com/map). Paid event parking is available throughout the city. RTD also will increase bus service to Boulder to provide more transit options for race spectators, and the HOP will provide free service within Boulder on Aug. 25 to make it easier for spectators to get around town to watch the race and celebrate at the race festival on Pearl Street. Service will be doubled for the BV route and on the BOLT to Longmont.

News Item: 



could you please explain what Boulder is doing that you feel is a "game"? They seem to be pretty supportive of the event. Wait, let me guess, you're pissed about the wristbands?


I've been following the race around the state. And the word from the followers is Boulder is. Making a stupid move with the wristbands. It's not so much that they are requiring wristbands but that they have only offered them in Boulder. So only Boulderites ave them. The idea is to bring non locals into the town do they will spend their money for Boulder's economy. But instead you have made people stay away. Guess that is good for the other paces the stage will visits like Lyons and Golden. Your loss Boulder.

Durango had unsold rooms and

Durango had unsold rooms and had fewer than expected spectators as did Telluride. This comes from their newspapers.

You can expect the race organizers not to be truthfull about race spectator numbers and economic impact...again.

Not that this isn't a great event, it would be far better with a better field of riders.
