US Pro Challenge

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.
