Chris Grealish and CrossVegas Part Ways--Focus Now on Nationals for Boulder

Chris Grealish, founder of the CrossVegas cycling event, leaves that organization to focus on securing national ‘cross championships for Boulder, Colorado, in 2012.

Boulder, Colorado, April 6, 2010 -- Cyclo-cross fanatic and cycling event promoter, Chris Grealish, will no longer be affiliated with the CrossVegas event. Grealish built the race into one of the mainstays on the national scene, scheduling the event to coincide with the fall trade show, Interbike. National and world champions attended the event during Grealish’s tenure.

Sandstone Ranch Criterium - Report

News Item: 

The new criterium on the block did not disappoint. It was important not to let the rectangular course fool you. Not only did the wind on the North side make things interesting, but the medians between turns 2 and 3 and again between 3 and 4 kept racers on their game. DBCEvents put on a great race and we hope to see this venue return in the future.

Vampire Riders Nico Toutenhoofd and Kevin Nicol, both racing for Hotel San Jose-Mellow Johnny's, and are both over 40, took 1 and 2 in the Lookout Mountain Hill Climb. All of the top 9 places were over 30 except for Robin Eckmann coming in at 18.

In the women's field the story was pretty much the same story with the top 2 over 40 and 4th place eclipsing those with 53 years of age.

While it is no doubt impressive what these athletes can accomplish at their age it's also interesting to wonder, where's the youth? Does hill climbing take that much experience? Has road cycling lost it's attraction to our youth or is our region so well stacked with amazing masters that youth who could compete against them are already on pro teams and racing around the country and world? I am voting for the later.... these guys can't easily pack there bags and leave their families to go race the Gila like so many other young Boulder stars are now.

Front Range MTB Series Cancelled on 5/2

Front Range MTB Series Cancelled on 5/2

Fri, 2010-04-30
Due to the recent and forecast inclement weather as well as an already saturated course, the Front Range MTB series has been cancelled for 5/2 in an effort to preserve the venue from environmental damage.

From the race promoter:

Bad news, we have to cancel tomorrow's FRMTB Series race at the Louisville Rec Center on account of soggy turf. I went out there yesterday to give it a look, stomping around in all the key sections of the course, and it just would not hold up to the abuse from a day of racing. Even with the sunshine we're having this morning, the dirt there (and it truly is dirt-dirt, and not the sandy dirt we're used to) just won't shed the water as fast as we'd need it to. Part of the issue is that the course was slatted to use all new trails which we were going to mow today, leaving a very short and fast grass for the race - but with soft mud/dirt underneath, the pressure of 200 riders lapping on that cut grass would just tear the grass+roots right out of the ground. And Louisville made it very clear they don't want us burning in new permanent trails (which we'd essentially do if racing on mud).
