Independence Pass is an incredible place to watch the US Pro Cycling Challenge. Yesterday, Patio and I parked a vehicle above Twin Lakes and rode our bikes to the top of Independence Pass. What a scene. One guy had a full sound system and there was a raging dance party going on. The Honey Stinger guy has some nice moves. The whole party was reminiscent of a Beach Saturday in April. I am fairly certain I have seen that Elvis at The Basin.
The race itself was quite impressive. Tom Danielson looked great going over the top leading TeeJay and the other big guns by 2 or 3 minutes. I was happy to see him win. The peloton sure scared him at the end. He deserved the win. I highly recommend going to one of the races. Watching the event on TV is great and I do it each night, but being there is a whole new world.
