• Boulder Representative Speaks Out on Stazio Crits!

    I picked this up from http://www.ryanfonkert.com/cycling_forum/.

    This is sad…

    Make of this what you will.
    We had worked closely with Chris Grealish for the past two years on a plan for the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department to coordinate the races. This was supposed to happen in 2008, but late in 2007, Chris decided that it would be best if he continue to run the races (knowing what the rental fee was). This decision was based on the fact that the City’s finance structure will not allow us to retain any monies generated by the races to go back specifically into cycling and Valmont City Park. By Chris running the races, any money generated can be earmarked for whatever he chooses.
    I worked with him to reduce the rates to as low as we could ($910 for hosting multiple races), but he made the decision to not pursue the races this year. Read more
