Anyone doing Echelon Gran Fondo Fort Collins?
Might do - was not on my list yet, but looks pretty good. Same weekend as the Tour de Cure though, would have to pick between the two.
we're really excited abut the event. its gonna be 3 days of great riding and racing.
friday we'll be hosting a time trial which has been selected as an amateur worlds qualifier, so expect some big guns to show.
saturday we're holding the ACA masters criterium championship (along with all regular crit categories, including kids and a well light twilight crit) in old town fort collins.
and sunday we'll be running 3 lengths of gran fondo, 2 of them on the same course at the same time as the Rist Canyon Road Race, which will be a masters RR qualifier.
its gonna be a huge bike party in fort collins all weekend. we're riding on a lot of momentum weve been riding since the USGP races here blew up last fall.
Echelon knows how to throw a great event and we in fort collins love and embrace bike culture like few places in the US.
plus, the next day is the beginning of the quiznos pro challenge , just a few hours south. so if youre not from CO and were on the fence about coming out for one or the other event, why not plan to do both? thats a lot of cycling and race watching bang for your buck!
hope to see you all there!
