I have been fortunate the past 3 days in that I had the pleasure of attending the Tour of Alberta. It has been well organized although not particularly well attended. Most fans wearing kit and holding bikes were in the 50+ group and a lot of spectators were seniors. Perhaps because it is mid week or maybe that is the demographics of local cycling interests.
Either way, It is nice to see the likes of Peter Sagan, Cadel Evans, Dave Z and Ryder Hesjedal supporting local cycling avocacy.
Crappy phone pic of the final lap today in Red Deer, AB. While it is a stage race, they have been finishing with 3 crit style laps. Better for the spectators.
