UPDATE! Emergency ordinance passes, Stage 6 finish is safe again!
Supporters and haters showed up to last night's council chambers and in the end the council voted unanimously for the emergency ordinance (which many say was not even needed) to secure Stage 6 finish plans.
Full details of the night can be found on the Daily Camera
Tonight is a big night for what could be the fate of Stage 6 finish. The city council will debate this on in their weekly meeting at 6pm. Supporters are encouraged to show up and probably show up early as space is limited in the council hearing room. Details on what is going down can be read at the Daily Camera but the real reason behind the technicalities seems a mystery, eco preservation, anti sporting events in open space, fear of the land being scared beyond reconstruction.
Hear what Mo Siegel, the founder of the Red Zinger which became the Coors Classic years later, has to say about the situation
Now that the Bolder Boulder has passed, it's time to get excited and focused on the upcoming USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Boulder. After the disappointment of the race skipping Boulder last year, we're lucky to host a critical stage of the 2012 Pro Challenge. World class bike racing has returned to Boulder, perfectly appropriate for the city considered by many as the founding home of North American bike racing.
