Latest News from Colorado Cycling and Upcoming Cycling Races

From Colorado Cycling:

Although a little later in the season than usual, the umpteenth annual Frostbite TT took place this past Sunday. Riders enjoyed the best weather ever for this event, and our medical providers reported no cases of frostbite šŸ˜‰
Thirty different Colorado Cycling clubs were represented on the podiums during the day, with BJC, Old School Industries, and Racer X topping the leader boards with four podiums apiece. There were five clubs that got to stand on the top podium twice during the day — Rally Sport, Palmares, ALP Cycles, Racer X, and Stages.
George Simpson (Project Echelon) set the fast time with a blistering 22:21. Julie Emmerman (Rally Sport) scorched the rest of the Pro women’s field with a 25:00.
