    I just linked this story in another thread before I noticed this one.

    This should become a great event with the fantastic terrain and the resident cyclist population. Kudos to Quizno's for stepping up as a sponsor. Too bad Coke or some of the other big Atlanta-based companies didn't see fit to do the same to save the Tour de Georgia.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    I want to see a stage go through Colorado National Monument.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    Yes! A 50+ team. "Team Old Farts". Or "Team Colonoscopy". They would have to give us a 4 hour headstart. Maybe waterbottles with Metamucil mixture. Hmmmm. Okay, I'm in.

    This is great news. My brother and I drove to CO to see the Coors Classic twice, the last one being the year Hinault won with Lemond's support. It was so much fun following the race around the mountains, staking out viewing spots for the road stages, watching the time trial up to Vail Pass, the criterium in Denver, the circuit races around the Morgul-Bismark and Estes Park. What a blast.

    Since the US Postal Service once sponsored a team, maybe we could get Social Security as a sponsor.

    August in the Rockies, GENIUS!

    I hope Contador shows up. I want to sneeze on him.....
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
