I know this is not local racing news but there are a lot of pros from Colorado that are racing the Tour of Utah. After the first stage Jason Donald is leading the race and holds the KOM lead. There is no live coverage of the race that I can find but Road Magazine is on hand is providing some twitter updates. You can follow there twitter feed here.
Honor the Stop is not about the Bus Stop or the Bus Stop ride but it is about respecting the law. This movement was started in San Francisco and is spreading throughout the country. Their theme is pretty basic, follow traffic laws and respect others in order to gain respect. I LOVE IT. I can't tell you how many times I get frustrated when I see a cyclist blow through a 4 way stop when there are 3 cars already at the stop. How can we expect auto traffic to cut us some slack when some riders don't give a damn about the laws of the road. The problem could explode as CU University encourages freshmen to leave cars at home. Hopefully the university (including the CU cycling team) will spend some time and $$ to focus on cycling education on campus.
While the venue may not be many riders first or 10th choice it is nice that the road season is getting one more race in before the door closes. Cycling Events will be hosting a Road Race on the Dear Trail course September 6. Doesn't anyone ever wonder why the road season ends so early?
