Traveling Bike Race

So we all know just how fun this bike race is. Hosting a Stage Finish is and has been a tremendous learning experience for me. One of the more intriguing aspects of it for me has been learning about the extraordinary logistics involved. The traveling road show associated with the race is a bit mind blowing. Since yesterday there has been a steady stream of trucks and trailers arriving at The Basin. The TV crew left Steamboat yesterday and arrived just after dark last night.  The activity right now in High Noon Lot around the finish can be described as orchestrated chaos. There are hundreds of people up there doing amazing things. It could be my inner nerd, but this back of the house stuff is fascinating.
