Colorado Classic: Day 2 - Miles of Fun
Two days into the the Colorado Classic and we have our women winners!
- Sara Poidevin (Rally Cycling)
- Tayler Wiles (UnitedHealthcare)
- Abigail Mickey (Colavita/Bianchi)
Sara Poidevin proved to be an all-star, taking home QOM#1, Best Young Rider, Sprint, QOM#1, and QOM Winner!
The race courses are unlike the typical, European point-to-point. Instead, The Colorado Classic employs a circuit course which allows spectators to see riders more than once. In the case of Breckenridge, spectators were able to watch the women pass through town 5 times and the men passed through 10. With a 6.4 mile circuit, at an average 8.3% grade, those laps wore on even the pro-ist of pros.

And then we had Alex Howes of Ride Argyle Tarzan'ing his way across the finish line yesterday.
And later in the evening, we were able to watch Pro Women's 1 & 2, followed by Women's Cat 3-4-5 criterium racing in the heart of Denver streets!
