      Reigning U23 National Champion Eric Brunner raced in the mens open division and when asked about his win with the widest margin of any category he said, “The open men have the longest race so naturally gaps will be a bit bigger just because there is more time to develop gaps. Yesterday my goal was just to race as hard as I could, go out aggressively from the start, stay smooth through the technical sections and go full gas every time there was a long straightaway or hill. Read more

              • Do You Know The Story of the Lancaster Bridge? It’s a Colorado Connection of Life and Cycling

                Submitted by Bill Plock on October 12th, 2020

                Sometimes bridges connect roads and trails. Sometimes they connect neighbors and lives, in this case the Lancaster bridge in Idaho Springs connects a trail, to a life, to a past, to an era, to a lifestyle to all things cycling in Colorado.

The story made national news but was over-shadowed by the start of Operation Desert Storm on January 17th—the same day Scotts body was finally found.  Read more
