Just marked my calendar. I'm going to take the week off work to follow it.

Followed 4 stages this year. Too much fun!

Me too. Saw that last night and had to restrain myself from sending an email to my boss notifying him of my time off.

I put it on my vacation spreadsheet. Our club should have a meetup or two during it.

Fantastic idea! I caught it in Golden and Denver and really enjoyed it.

I saw it at Monarch Pass, Independence Pass and the finish line in downtown Denver. Already submitted my vacation time off request for 2012. My wife and I had a blast. Spent 23 hours on Independence Pass to get to see them for 15 minutes. My brother thinks I have a couple a screws loose.

We were on Indy Pass too. We camped 2 miles below the top of the pass on the first switchback. Was a great place to have the riders go by just a few feet away from me! Then we spent the day in Vail. We spent some time at the beginning of the TT course, then took the bus to the later part of the course. Spent some time looking at the team busses too. Got a free BMC hat!

Drove to Steamboat and stayed a couple of nights there (camped at campground outside of town, rode bikes into town). Saw the stage finish there and the start the next day.

We saw a good mix of different parts of the race.
