    Submitted by Bill Plock on November 2nd, 2020

    “FUN!” with a big smile said Andy Johnson, President of The Bicycle Racing Association when asked after finishing his race on the new cyclocross venue in Broomfield. And of course many were in costumes

    When Lance Panigutti found out the Sienna Lake venue was not going to be available in 2020, the city of Broomfield presented another option tucked in a business park just north of highway 36 and east of Highway 287. “I like this area, it has good parking and amenities and room to expand. Its in an industrial park area with little impact on the city or public recreation areas. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out, I only wish the big run up challenge was a little closer,” said Lance. “The city was great to work with and I’m excited for this venue in the future.”  Read more

      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
