According to the DenverPost, Colorado towns are ready to signup for 2012 of USA Pro Cycling Challenge despite that according to some the race did not provide the revenue impact they were wanting.
Who is telling the truth here? First off, the fans didn't show up to the race on zero budget but at the same time I doubt many got a hotel room for the night or dined in Aspen. Measuring success is a statistics game, if this race were run by the Tourism Board like the Tour of Missouri(a) was, then this would have no doubt been a HUGELY successful race as it got the attention of people from around the nation thinking about making a Colorado vacation but if you are only measuring success on a 2 day window and $$ are the only goal and hotel bookings or restaurants tabs are your primary view of success then ya, this could have been a flop.
Let you be the judge and try to be objective on our poll. Was the US Pro Cycling Challenge a success or failure for Colorado towns that hosted?
