It's official folks, no Boulder stage in 2013. But don't worry the tour goes on and it will still be a great show. While the stage will be missed it's probably good to give other cities a taste of cycling (because Boulder doesn't need to be reminded of what cycling is) and also give time for some of the battles waged to make Stage 6 happen this year to heal and policies maybe changed to make a future stage in Boulder easier.

Shoemaker noted the complexity of running a route through Boulder, saying, "It requires a level of planning that exceeds most of the other types of stages."
"There's a lot of logistics involved," Shoemaker said. "Nothing in Boulder is easy."
