Boulder City Attorney: Legal Barriers to Flagstaff Race Unlikely
By Erica Meltzer Camera Staff Writer
Boulder City Attorney Tom Carr says he believes the city manager can waive a ban on competitive events on Flagstaff Mountain in order to allow the USA Pro Cycling Challenge to finish its Boulder stage there.
Colorado Springs, Colo. -- A former Air Force pilot is killed cycling down Highway 83 in Douglas County. He was rear-ended by what officials are calling a drunk driver. Friends are reminiscing about 46-year-old Michael Joyal ,who was hit by a Jeep Wrangler while riding south on Highway 83.
"When his wife called, I thought maybe she was going to say his ribs were broken. I asked her how he was, and she said he was dead," said Tina Cline who was a close friend of Joyal.
“SMBA made such a difference in my life,” Jessie said. “It gave me confidence, it gave me access to opportunities in college, in racing, in traveling and experiencing cultures around the world.”
“I think that's why I love this program -- because I went through it, and I can look back and see what a benefit it was for me. So if these kids can take away even one percent of that, I'm psyched.”
When I met Jessie at one of Bacaro's Sunday rides, she told me her mission was to get more girls racing mountain bikes. The girls team is a step in that direction. It's open to all girls, ages 9 through 17, whether they've mountain biked before or not, she said.
