I think its that the longer distance rides/events are becoming more common in the US. We are getting more information about the Cyclosportive, Randonneur(sp) and other long distance events that the European riders have done for a while. So m many people want to experience things like the Etape events that follow the routes of a segment of a stage race or a Monument/Classic race. As bicycling has enjoyed another surge in popularity and the internet has opened things up to more of us American riders are organizing the Double Century and Rando events. You and the others were ahead of your time. Just my rambling, strange thought process at work.
