Boulder Colorado

I was thinking about going to the Pro Tour again this year. The year before last I went to Aspen for it, but this year I thought I would try Boulder. Can anybody tell me anything that may help, as far as getting a room and what part of town to stay. I haven't looked at the course yet and I will when I get done here. Thanks for any replies.



I just read that it's not going to Boulder. Thanks anyhow.

A bike stage race in Colorado that doesn't do a criterium in Boulder?.....or the Boulder mountain road race?
What has the world come to?

Couldn't help you there. The only stage I've seen in Colorado was the start of the Manitou Springs to Hoosier Pass road race in 1979 and I happened to be staying at a girlfreind's place there at the time.

Thanks Joe, I found a few places where I'd like to stay. I'll have to look and see where they are going to have the race festivities going on. It sure is pretty country. I'm thinking about driving so I can bring my bike with me. Greg told me you guys had a pretty good time.

If you are driving you will be sorry if you don't take the bicycle! Riding in CO is too much fun. If you fly, you can borrow my bike case.

Thanks anyhow Greg, but I'll probable drive. We have somethings to work out to see if we can make it. That back surgery may be a problem.
