Who's that at the US Pro Cycling Challenge?

Who's repping the ADV sticker on national TV? NBC sports's in-race reporter fails atgatt, but his driver's an inmate!

Spotted another... can't really see with my cell-phone-pic of the TV, but that's an ADV sticker on the pannier.

I don't know about the riders, but another inmate I know was the bass player for the concert in Telluride town park after the first stage. If he would only look up when he played, he would have seen us!

There was a clip showing the leader and a V-strom crept into the picture. The picture pixelated and disintegrated. I was kind of surprised that my TV hated V-stroms so much.

Must be a bunch of volunteers working the race. If you haven't done it, it's a real hoot!! Up close and personal with the best bicycle racers in the world!

I volunteered to be a Marshal for that race last year in Vail. It was a blast. I don't know if they asked for volunteers again this year. I didn't see a thread it the Rockies section.

I saw a couple of Vstroms, a couple of BMW GSs, and at least one Ducati Multi-Strada while I was watching stage 2 yesterday. Those were the only ADV stickers I noticed, but I didn't actually start watching for them until I saw the in-race reporter.. I've got Stage 3 set to TiVo... I'll watch when I get home and see if I can pick some out.

If anyone figures out who it is driving around the in-race reporter, we need to over-night him a FYYFF sticker for his helmet, stat!

Friday they'll be blasting right across my front yard on the Ave. Its great that the city has done a bunch of paving up and down the west side and downtown. It takes the biggest bicycle race in the country to get anything done to our badly neglected streets.

I was there too - what a blast.



I started emailing Ed (Dailey, the safety/moto coordinator) back in April I think about working it again this year, but eventually turned out they didn't need any extras this year. Not surprising since they have a cadre of serious riders and the TT is short this year with a finish right next to the start. I need to try and find GSDave when they come through Boulder and find out how to become a real official for the future.
