First Things First – Fast Bikes

A short time ago there was a little cycling race that happened here in Colorado. It drew some of the biggest names in the international cycling circuit, and by all accounts was a huge success. Taking inspiration from the old Coors Classic race of a bygone era, the US Pro Cycling Challenge covered many of Colorado’s classic roads. What is a faithful cyclist to do but follow the race and ogle at the fast bikes. Had I been a little more up on my training I may have entered and won. But, without my entrance, Levi Leipheimer won the 7 day race, and Tejay Van Garderen took the best young riders class.
