The racing then shifts to the western part of the country with the return of the Exergy Twilight Criterium in Boise, Idaho, before wrapping up with the USA CRITS Finals held in Vail, Colorado.
"We're excited to be a part of the USA CRITS Series this year," said Tour of Vail race director Dieter Drake, who also organizes the Tour of the Battenkill. "We've been working for over a year to bring back the magic of the old Coors Classic to Vail. It's an excellent venue for such a prestigious series final and we hope our weekend-long professional and amateur event will be an attractive destination for racers and spectators."
Channel 9 is looking for what the greatest Colorado Olympic moment was. The 60+ Vic's Expresso Pursuit team breaking the world record is one of the choices. What IMO makes this such a special moment is the longevity of these racers, I really hope that when I hit their age that I'm not only still riding my bike but also remain competitive.... However it is subjective whether I'm "competitive today". Nice job guys
