What a cool race. I did this race last Saturday and the course was fantastic. It had a little of everything from rolling hills to dirt to a couple of decisive climbs. If you are ever out near Glenwood Springs and want a really cool ride to do check out the course. The course was out and back with about 15 miles of great dirt road. The dirt section was smoother than the chip seal. The scenery along the course was great as the road follows the Colorado River. Hopefully the race is held next year.
